NEW ORLEANS — Authorities in Louisiana are looking for a man accused of punching his girlfriend several times and shooting at her parents when they arrived on the scene. Times-Picayune reports 22-year-old Murphy Brown is wanted on several offenses, including aggravated assault with a firearm and domestic battery for the Sept. 6. incident.

The victim told New Orleans police that an argument with Brown had escalated and that he punched her in the face several times while she was inside of her vehicle.

Authorities say Brown took her phone after she contacted her parents. When her parents arrived, Brown grabbed a gun and fired several shots at the victim’s parents, hitting the back door of their vehicle.
