Two suspects stole a truck and then got lost while driving in the Thibodaux area. Since they didn’t know where they were, they spent the night sleeping in the truck near a convenience store. Early the next morning, one of the suspects jumped into another truck that had pulled up to the store for gas and sped off. Deputy Guillot along with another deputy who had only been out of the training academy for one month, quickly spotted the second stolen truck and pulled it over. They ordered the suspect to get out of the truck which he did, but as Deputy Guillot attempted to handcuff him, his friend drove by the scene in the original stolen truck and fired a 20 gauge shotgun at the officers hitting both of them. Deputy Guillot was hit in the back and the other deputy was hit in the arm. Neither received life threatening injuries.
