Houma, La. - Houma Police are trying to catch up with a suspect they say stabbed a man for no apparent reason and then shot at him.

They're looking for 27-year-old Dominique Lyons.

Investigators say Lyons attacked the 21-year-old victim who was trying to get into his car on King Street.

Police say Lyons stabbed the man in the chest with a pocket knife, then got a gun from his house and fired three or four shots.

The gunshots didn't hit anyone and the victim's stab wound was not life threatening.

Police have an aggravated battery warrant out for Lyons, who was not at his home when they went to try to arrest him.
