7/26/19 Lafayette SWAT team

Lafayette police walk a robbery suspect from an apartment in Romney Meadows after a brief standoff on July 26. The incident happened a week before officers responded to a shooting at the 500 block of Gordon Court.

The suspect is described as a black male with short hair, aged from the late teens to early 20s and wearing a white T-shirt and jeans.

Identification of the victim will be released by the coroner’s office.
