Lafourche, Louisiana – Authorities in Louisiana are attempting to locate a suspect wanted for allegedly firing a gun at a home with multiple people inside, including children.

Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre disclosed that they are searching for a man from Houma, Louisiana who is facing four charges of attempted murder from a shooting that took place in Thibodaux, Louisiana on Tuesday. There is an active arrest warrant for 23-year-old Nehru Davis of Houma, Louisiana.

In the early morning of August 1, 2023, at 12:15 a.m., law enforcement officials were called to an apartment located on Meadow Circle, Thibodaux, due to reported gunfire. Multiple shots had hit the front door and window of the residence. Inside, numerous individuals were present, of which three were children.

Detectives discovered through their investigation that Nehru Davis had been sending menacing messages to a woman living in the apartment. Davis had texted and called the woman within two hours after the shooting incident. After the investigation, detectives procured an arrest warrant for Davis on charges of four counts of attempted second-degree murder,  illegal discharge of a firearm, and aggravated criminal damage to property. 

Detectives from Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office have been collaborating with investigators from Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office in their efforts to find Davis.
