POINTE COUPEE PARISH, LA (WAFB) – A number of investigators from several agencies have been called to the scene of a deadly triple shooting at a home in Pointe Coupee Parish.

The shooting happened around 4 p.m. in the 14400 block of Hwy 416 in Glynn, Louisiana. Officials confirmed three people are dead.

Pointe Coupee Sheriff Bud Torres said a West Baton Rouge Sheriff’s deputy and her daughter were killed in the shooting. He added the deputy was the wife of a Louisiana State Police trooper.
