"We get a call from a neighbor who heard shots fired and observed an individual in the middle of the road," said Sheriff Jeff Wiley. 

Chief Deputy Bobby Webre said at last check the victim was in critical condition.

"I think it was gangsters with guns and cars and vendettas and paybacks and all that stuff that we seem to encounter in America nowadays," Wiley said. "And, it happened today on a quiet little dead end road in Geismar."

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of the wanted suspects should call Crime Stoppers at 344-7867.
