According to Sheriff Bobby J. Guidroz, “On October 3, 2020, detectives with the St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office were notified of a shooting at the 500 block of Prairie Ronde Highway in the Opelousas area.”

Reports indicate that Stephanie Dore and the victim were having a domestic dispute over the telephone. When the victim returned home a short time later, he exited the vehicle. Stephanie Dore then went inside of the vehicle and grabbed a handgun, which she immediately pointed at the victim. A struggle for the weapon ensued and the victim was able to disarm Stephanie Dore.

“A handgun was also kept on a shelf in the laundry room for protection, as well as accessibility,” stated Sheriff Guidroz. “Reports indicate that once the victim removed the weapon from Ms. Dore’s grasp, she then grabbed the weapon in the laundry room and shot the victim in the stomach area.”

Stephanie Dore called 911 to report the shooting, stating that the victim had a gun and was coming after her. She stated that she shot him in either the stomach or the side area, he was still breathing and a weapon was located by his side.

While injured, the victim was also able to call 911 after he heard Stephanie Dore report inaccurate information to the operator. The victim stated that Stephanie Dore pulled a gun on him and he disarmed her. He then stated that she pulled another gun on him and shot him.

According to the victim, both handguns belonged to Stephanie Dore.

On Oct. 16, 2020, Stephanie Dore was brought to the St. Landry Parish Jail and booked on the charge of Attempted Second Degree Murder
