The St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff's Office is looking for a vehicle of interest in connection with the triple shooting in LaPlace that claimed the life of one man and injured two others. Sheriff Mike Tregre says 23-year-old Travis Gregoire died and and another 23-year-old man is recovering at a hospital. 

He says the third shooting victim is an 18-year-old female.

"She is currently being treated at University Hospital and her situation is critical," said Tregre.

Tregre says they are still interviewing people to try to determine suspects or motive in the deadly shooting. 

He says their crime cameras captured an image of a vehicle described as a white four door extended cab truck.

"Investigators believe that this is the vehicle used in the commission of this crime," said Tregre.

Tregre says they want to find the truck, its owner and any other possible occupants of the vehicle when the shooting took place.

They aren't releasing how many people could be involved, but Tregre says it appears as though the victims had just arrived in a vehicle of their own.

"They were exiting the vehicle that they drove up in, and that's when this white pickup truck drove up and opened fire," said Tregre.
