Police shooting event set for this weekend

Law enforcement officers, firefighters and all emergency service first responders are welcome to take part in the all day competition Saturday at the F.D. Buddy East  Training Complex on County Road 309.

Participants can shoot from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. A free dinner of red beans and rice will be provided and donated.

An AR-15 law enforcement-style rifle will be raffled off. Tickets are $10; however, anyone shooting in the three-man team competition will get a free ticket.

Bring your own weapon and amunitiion.

Trophies will be presented during dinner.

Agencies from other counties are welcome to participate.

The Lafayette County Law Enforcement Officers Association also will have a sight-in day during the event for the general public. Anyone can come on Saturday to have their rifle sighted.
