LABADIEVILLE, LA (WAFB) -

State police are asking for the public's help in investigating an incident where an off-duty police officer traded shots with a suspect during a home burglary.

Investigators say that the suspect tried to burglarize a Thibodaux police officer's home in Labadieville about 3 a.m. Saturday morning. According to police, the officer was at his home at the time of the burglary. The suspect fired at the off-duty officer with the officer returning fire at the suspect.

Police say that the would-be burglar fled into a nearby getaway car that drove off traveling south on LA 1 from the Labadieville area. The off-duty officer was not injured in the confrontation, and it is unclear if the suspect sustained any injuries from the shootout.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call Louisiana State Police Detectives at (985) 876-8834, Crime Stoppers at (800) 743-7433, or text your tip with “GIVEATIP” to 274637
