The Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating a shooting that left an 18-year-old woman injured early Tuesday morning.

Police said investigators responded to the shooting just after midnight, which was reported in the 3500 block of La. 316 in Gray.

An 18-year-old woman was reportedly shot in her lower body while lying in bed inside a mobile home. The woman was treated by Acadian Ambulance at the scene and was taken to an out-of-area hospital for continued treatment. Officials said her injuries are considered non-life-threatening, according to their latest information.

Police found multiple shell casings and other evidence near a wooded area near the rear of the home where the shots came from, the Sheriff's Office said in a news release. Investigators believe the injured woman was not the intended target.
