On January 15, 2021, at approximately 1:19 a.m., officers with the Crowley Police Department responded to the 1500 block of North Avenue I in response to an initial call of shots fired and then a subsequent call about a male in the walkway who was shot.

Upon arrival they discovered a male subject who had been shot at least once laying on the ground. Officers attempted first aid but their efforts proved unsuccessful.

Investigators with the Crowley Police Department were called out at which time they processed the scene, collecting a number of items for evidence and speaking with residents. A motive at this time is unknown. It is also unknown as to whether there was one or more shooters. Detectives do have some persons of interest and are following every lead possible.

The victim, Timmy Harmon, was pronounced dead on scene by the Acadia Parish Coroner's Office and transported for a forensic autopsy.
