Weekend shooting leaves 13 wounded in Louisiana

Thirteen people were shot over the weekend during memorial service for a murder victim in Bogalusa, La., according to local reports. One individual was left in critical condition due to a gunshot wound.

The Bogalusa Police Department, in a statement posted to Facebook on Sunday morning, said that the agency started to receive reports of gun shots and victims needing medical attention just after 9 p.m. on Saturday.

When officers arrived, they “observed an extremely large crowd of people gathered in the area for what was believed to be a memorial service for Dominique James,” who was recently murdered. They also located “several victims with gunshot wounds.”

Police found James  dead in his car May 8, two days after he was originally reported missing, and launched a homicide investigation on the case.

As of Sunday morning, no eyewitnesses have come forward with any information and the police say they continue to pursue any leads on the case.
