St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office searching for vehicle involved in shooting

Detectives with the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office are searching for a vehicle they say may have been involved in a shooting last week. 

Deputies say the shooting happened on August 19, just after 11 a.m. in the 400 block of Saturn Road. When deputies arrived, they found a 47-year-old female victim with multiple gunshot wounds to her upper body. She was taken to Teche Regional Medical Center where her condition is unknown. 

During the investigation, detectives learned that the victim walked into her backyard after hearing a noise. Once outside, she was confronted by the suspect with a handgun. After a brief argument, the suspect shot the victim multiple times and fled the scene. 

If you recognize the vehicle, you are asked to call the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's office at 985-384-1622 or 337-828-1960.
