A heavily armed SWAT team stormed a house in Bayou Blue this morning after a caller reported that a gunman had shot several people and was still in the house, police said.
The SWAT team entered the home in the 1700 block of LaCroix Drive, off Bayou Blue Road near Shelly's Men's Club, about 8:30 a.m. and found no one inside, Lafourche sheriff's spokesman Brennan Matherne said.
Someone had called 911 about an hour earlier about a possible home invasion and shooting, he said.
Authorities suspect that a home invasion and shooting may have occurred Wednesday night at that address, saying up to two people were hospitalized for injuries stemming from the incident. The victims were not transported by ambulance.
The extent of the injuries were not immediately available, and no suspect or motive has been named.
