Notice from ULPD

At about 7:20 Wednesday night, UL Police responded to a report of a loud noise at Legacy Park Apartments, 210 Girard Park Circle. When officers arrived, witnesses reported hearing a loud noise coming from one of the apartments. They also stated that two people then left the apartment and the area.

It was later determined that the occupants of that apartment were playing with what was believed to be an M80 firework when it went off.  One of them sustained a hand injury and was transported by a friend to a local hospital.

During a follow-up investigation, police learned that there could be another M80-type firework inside the apartment. As a precautionary measure, the building was partially evacuated this morning while UL Police searched the apartment. A second M80-type firework was located and removed.

According to University Police, Legacy Park residents were never in imminent danger. The partial evacuation was conducted only as a precaution.

An investigation into the incident is continuing.
