On February 16, 2022 just after 9:30PM officers with the Opelousas Police Department were dispatched to 121 West Church Street in reference to the shooting of a home and four vehicles. 

Surveillance video from the area showed four suspects walk away from a gray vehicle on Occidental Street prior to the shooting. The suspects then ran back to the vehicle after the shooting and left the area traveling North on Occidental.  Approximately fifty spent shell casings were located in the area.  The home and vehicles were shot multiple times.
