KPEL

A Lafayette Police Officer is recovering from minor injuries after he was run over in the Wal-Mart parking lot on Ambassador Caffery early Wednesday morning.

According to Lafayette police, the off-duty police officer was working security at the Wal-Mart location early Wednesday morning when he had to investigate an alleged shoplifting incident. Upon detaining two suspects in the store, the officer learned that their getaway car was waiting just outside the store.

When the officer went out to investigate the car, a female suspect jumped into the mid-sized vehicle and backed over the officer. She then hit the officer again, this time dragging him 100-feet.

Once the officer was able to free himself from the vehicle, he opened fire on the fleeing suspects.

Lafayette police say that they are looking for a dark mid-sized vehicle. The driver was a female, and they say that there were two other people in the vehicle when it hit the officer.

If you have any information on this incident please call Crime stoppers at (337) 232-TIPS.
