Update: Man attacked at gas station, fires back

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Update: Two men are in the hospital following an attack and shooting on Louisville Avenue in Monroe Monday morning around 10:15 AM.

It happened at 3200 Louisville Avenue at the Hurry Back gas and convenience store. Police say a man was pumping gas when he was attacked by 42-year-old Terry Harris with a stick. That's when police say one of the men pulled a gun and fired.  Harris was wounded in his abdomen as a result. Harris was found at the scene and taken to the hospital where he is in serious, but stable condition.

The other man, who was attacked, fled the scene but was found by police a short time later. He was also taken to the hospital and is also in serious, but stable condition. Police have not released the name of the man initially attacked pending their investigation. Battery charges are pending against Harris.

Police say this could possibly be a case of self defense. They say there was no attempt to rob the store, the store only served as the location of the attack.
