CARENCRO, La. (KLFY) – Police officers were on the scene for more than 5 hours, after a fatal shooting at an apartment complex in Carencro leaves one man dead.

Interim Police Chief David Anderson said the shooting happened around 3:15 p.m. at the Woodstone apartments on Prejean Road near CAYSI Park.

“When our officers arrived, they made entry to the apartment in question and found one male who was deceased apparently from some gunshot wounds,” Anderson said.

Police did not identify the victim, but according to family members, the victim is 29-year-old Greg Gotch.

Gotch’s aunt Josilla Sylvester said this is not the first murder in her family.

“This has been an ongoing situation for the past year, black on black crime, young men losing their lives, mothers crying and weeping,” Sylvester said.

Anderson also said they do not have any information on a suspect at this time. The case is still under investigation.
