On October 9, 2021, just after midnight, deputies with the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a mobile home park located in the 17,000 stretch of Hwy 444 in Livingston, LA.
Sheriff Jason Ard says, ‘Deputies located two victims – a male & a female – with gunshot wounds. The male was struck in the arm. The female suffered injuries to her arm & leg. They were both transported for treatment. They are both expected to recover. The pair tells detectives that they heard a noise outside of their home. They then witnessed someone barging in through their front door & firing shots. We do not believe this to be a random shooting. It’s believed Mire was familiar with the victims.’
