Overnight Shooting on Filhiol Ave. Injures Man

One man is injured Saturday morning after an unknown suspect walked up and fired through their door.
MONROE -- Monroe Police report responding to a reported shooting in the 1800 block of Filhiol Avenue at approximately 4 a.m. Saturday morning.

Authorities said an unknown black male knocked on the door of 1812 Filhiol and made contact with the resident, Kerry M. Carter.

The unknown male allegedly asked Carter for a person that did not live at the residence and Carter told him no one by that name lived there.

Police said the unknown suspect then fired three shots from a handgun through the door.

Carter was struck in the neck and on the cheek below his left eye and suffered minor injuries. He was treated at a local hospital and released with non-life threatening injuries.

Authorities report crime scene units and Monroe Detectives were called to the scene and found evidence there. That evidence is currently leading investigators to believe narcotics were involved in the incident.

Police said the investigation is ongoing.
