One Dead in Overnight Shooting in Jennings
Police in Jennings were called to the scene of a shooting last night about 9 pm. When they arrived at the scene on West Street they discovered two individuals with gunshot wounds. One of those individuals did not survive. There has been no report on the condition of the other person injured in this shooting.
As of late last night, details on the case were still very minimal. Police do say they have a person of interest in custody. It was not made clear whether that person was one of those wounded in the shooting.
Jennings Police are expected to release details of the incident later today. That information will likely include the name of the deceased, which has been withheld pending notification of next of kin, and the name of the person of interest.
This is an active investigation and details will be made available when police have completed their processing of the crime scene and interview with witnesses at the scene.
