Police: Hostage reports unfounded in Bayou Blue

BAYOU BLUE, La. (AP) - Police say a heavily armed SWAT team stormed a house in Bayou Blue after a caller reported that a gunman had shot several people and was still in the house.

The Courier reports the SWAT team entered the home about 8:30 a.m. Thursday and found no one inside.

Lafourche sheriff's spokesman Brennan Matherne said someone had called 911 about an hour earlier about a possible home invasion and shooting.

Authorities suspect that a home invasion and shooting may have occurred Wednesday night at that home, saying up to two people were hospitalized for injuries stemming from the incident. The victims were not transported by ambulance.
