PAINCOURTVILLE, La (WVLA) -- Assumption detectives are investigating a drive-by shooting that left two people injured and several dozen bullet holes.

It happened on Grant Road in Paincourtville.

17-year-old Shyrone Coleman was playing video games inside his sister's house when the bullets came flying in.

Shots went all through the home--breaking mirrors and tearing through entire closets full of clothes.

In all, detectives found 29 bullet casings.

Coleman says, when he went to grab his two-year-old nephew, one of those bullets shot him right in the arm.

"After I got hit, I ran on the outside to see who it was," said Coleman. "Somebody that passed by say it was three guys on a four wheeler riding around with masks on."

Anyone with information concerning this matter can contact the Criminal Investigation Division at 985-526-1627 or the Communications Division at 985-369-2912.
