ABBEVILLE, La. (KLFY) – Police are investigating a late night shooting at the Live Oak Manor apartment complex that left one man in critical condition.

The shooting happened just before 10:25 p.m. Tuesday in the 1600 block of Martin Luther King Drive.

Lt. David Hardy said two suspects “began shooting guns at one another while inside the complex.”

One of the suspects was shot in the shoulder and taken to Abbeville General Hospital. He was then taken to a Lafayette hospital where he remains in critical condition.

Investigators are searching for the second suspect, Rendrick Nunez, 21, of Abbeville. Nunez is wanted for attempted second-degree murder, illegal use of a firearm and obstruction of justice.

Hardy said the suspect who is currently in critical condition will face similar charges, including attempted second-degree murder.

Anyone with any information on Nunez’s whereabouts is asked to call the Abbeville Police Department at 337-893-2511.
