BREAUX BRIDGE, LA (WAFB) -

Louisiana State Police are investigating shooting involving a Breaux Bridge police officer and a 17-year-old girl.

Just after 7:30 p.m. Sunday, officers were dispatched to the 900 block of Landry Street in Breaux Bridge, LA for the report of a disturbance. As the Officers were arriving on the scene, 17-year-old Darnesha Harris of Breaux Bridge, was driving a 2005 Toyota Corolla toward their vehicle.

Harris struck the front of the Officers unit with the vehicle she was driving, then she placed the vehicle in reverse and struck a parked car on the roadway.
