Woman: Ex-boyfriend shot current boyfriend, then was shot


SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) — (6/30/19) A northwest Louisiana woman says her ex-boyfriend broke in a window and shot her current boyfriend, before the intruder himself was shot, leaving both dead.

Local news outlets report Caddo Parish deputies are investigating the two gunshot deaths, which occurred before dawn Sunday.

Officer Cindy Chadwick says the woman tells deputies that the intruder entered and shot her current boyfriend. The homeowner says she heard another gunshot as she and her five children were running from the house. It’s unclear if the intruder shot himself.

Deputies found both the intruder and the current boyfriend lying on a bedroom floor with gunshot wounds. The intruder died before he could be taken to a hospital, while the other man died at a hospital.

Neither man has been identified.
