CENTRAL, LA (WAFB) -

Two people were found shot to death inside separate cars Tuesday morning in what investigators are calling a "domestic murder-suicide."

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office identified the victim as Alyssa Kanouse, 24, of Central. Investigators say they believe she was shot and killed by Larry Warino Jr., 31, of Lafayette, who then shot himself.

Officials report deputies were contacted to investigate a shooting on Wax Road, referred to as Old Wax Road by people in the area, near Durmast Drive in Central around 6:45 a.m.

Detectives say Kanouse was found dead inside a silver sedan and Warino was found dead in a white one. Warino was reportedly the ex-boyfriend of Kanouse.

District Attorney Hillar Moore says mental health issues might have played a role in this case. He calls this an "unfortunate, but preventable" situation.

"It's something that we really need to as a community, state, nation have to continue looking at tell-tale signs of troubled people that are struggling that eventually will lead to something like this," Moore said.

Moore also says this fatal shooting brings the total number of domestic violence related shootings in East Baton Rouge Parish to ten, surpassing last year’s total of eight. “These are surely 100 percent preventable. Is it better education, more study of what goes into this? How does a person come to this point? That’s what we’re interested in," he said.

The investigation is ongoing.
