Man, woman arrested in slaying of man in Louisiana
GONZALES, La. (AP) — Authorities say a Louisiana man and woman have been arrested in the shooting death of another man.
The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post Tuesday that 24-year-old Kirpatrick Morrison and 22-year-old Lauren Donaldson were acquaintances of 23-year-old Christopher Goudeau.
Authorities tell news outlets that Morrison and Donaldson were at Goudeau’s residence when an argument turned into a physical altercation.
Authorities say Morrison shot the victim and the pair fled the scene. The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office apprehended them after they were involved in a traffic accident in Baton Rouge.
Morrison and Donaldson were charged with first-degree murder. Morrison was also booked on a count of aggravated assault. It’s unclear if they have lawyers.
