CENTRAL, LA (WAFB) - Deputies with the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office are investigating two shooting incidents they believe to be connected.
Investigators were called out Wednesday morning for a welfare check at a home on Trendale Drive in Central. When they arrived, they found 28-year-old Gary Graves, Jr. suffering from a gunshot wound.
Graves was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.
The home on Trendale was not Graves' primary residence. During the investigation, they learned Graves may have had a dispute with his roommate at the home they shared on North Flannery Road.
Deputies went to the home on North Flannery and found Graves' roommate, 56-year-old Damon Dixon. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
At this time, investigators believe Graves shot Dixon, then attempted suicide. However, the investigation is ongoing.
