Man shot within the face through the custody swap at Planet Health Wednesday night time, says LPD | Crime / police

A man was arrested after police said a custody swap ended in gunshots in the Planet Fitness parking lot on Northeast Evangeline Thruway Wednesday night.

Bryant Batiste, 27, and the victim were fighting in the gym parking lot around 9 p.m. when Batiste drew a gun and shot the 32-year-old man in the face. First aiders provided first aid to the injured person and he was later rushed to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Lafayette police spokesman Sgt. Wayne Griffin said.

Batiste, from Lafayette, was arrested for attempted second degree murder and sent to the Lafayette Township Correctional Center.
