WELSH, La. (KPLC) - A police chase on I-10 on Labor Day involved two vehicles, both driven by persons of interest in a homicide in Franklin, Louisiana, authorities say.

It ended with a standoff on I-10 that lasted around three hours, stopping traffic in both directions.

Trooper Derek Senegal, spokesperson for Louisiana State Police Troop D, said a BOLO was put out on a silver Cadillac just before 10 a.m. The driver is considered a person of interest in the shooting death of a 37-year-old woman in Franklin Monday morning.

The chase began around Crowley and ended near Welsh and Lacassine.

Viewer video showed a black vehicle was stopped first and a suspect surrendered. What sounds like shots fired can be heard on the video.

The Cadillac continued to lead numerous police vehicles on a chase for a short while, before it came to a stop. Authorities shut down I-10 in both directions until the driver surrendered hours later.
