A woman called 911 to report that her ex-boyfriend, Joseph Greaux, discharged shots at her friend in the vicinity of the Value Pack Gas Station located in La Grande Princesse at about 10:22 p.m. on Friday. Officers were dispatched to the scene and found spent casings on the roadway and several casings at the service station, according to the police report.
