HAMMOND, La. (WAFB) - A man shot his wife before taking his own life in an apparent murder-suicide in Hammond on Friday, Oct. 22, according to the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Chief Jimmy Travis with TPSO said Heidi Davis, 34, was shot by her husband, Anthony Davis, 38, at their home on E. Coles Creek Loop.

He added deputies were called out to the home after neighbors hear the shots and discovered Anthony Davis had barricaded himself inside the home.

According to Travis, the TPSO Special Response Team was also called out to the scene and tried to make contact with Anthony Davis but after getting no response, team members went inside and found him dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Travis said Heidi Davis was found inside suffering from gunshot wounds and was taken to the hospital where she later died.

The investigation is ongoing.
