LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Lake Charles Police are on the lookout for two suspects they say are impersonating cops. Police also say the pair was involved in an early Sunday morning shooting that sent one man and one of the suspects to the hospital.

The shooting occurred in the 1500 block of Clover Street. Police say the victim had just dropped off a friend at a house when an unmarked Ford Taurus pulled up and two suspects demanded the victim to get out of his car. The suspects identified themselves as police officers.

Authorities say the suspects then asked the victim if he had drugs in his vehicle. Police say the suspects then ordered the man to get into their car. After becoming suspicious of the car and the suspects, the victim bailed out of the car. One of the suspects started fighting with the victim. The other suspect took out a gun and started shooting into the fight. According to police, the suspect shot the victim in his arm before accidentally shooting his partner in crime as well.

Police haven't yet said where the other suspect was shot or what his condition may be at this time. Police say they have been able to identify the suspect who was shot. However, they are not releasing his name at this time.

Police plan on releasing descriptions of the suspects in the next day or two.

The victim was taken to an area hospital and released.

Police also say during the shooting, the gunman shot several bullets into a nearby house where children were inside. A neighbor's back car window was also shot out.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Lake Charles Police at 660-3072.
