KENNER, La. -- Police are investigating a quadruple shooting that left four people dead, including three children, Tuesday in Kenner, according to the Kenner Police Department.
The shooting happened in the 3800 block of East Louisiana State Drive around 5 p.m.
The victims in the shooting are an adult female and three children, ages 12 years old, 1 years old and 6 months old.
Kenner Police Chief Steve Caraway said the bodies were found by the husband. He told police that he had been at work since 6 a.m., and when he got home, he called out for his children but didn't hear anything.
"When he didn't hear anything, he eventually walked upstairs and found them, all of the kids, lying in the bed," Caraway said. Caraway added that the body of the wife was found in the same bed.
The mother, whose age has not been released, suffered a gunshot wound to her forehead, Caraway said. The 1-year-old and the 6-month-old also both suffered gunshot wounds to the forehead. The coroner is on the scene and is trying to determine where the 12-year-old was shot.
Caraway said police haven't found any evidence tying the shooting to the father, but he said it's "far too early to assume anything." He said police found a weapon in the room where the bodies were found.
"It's still very early in the investigation. We're interviewing the father and other family members at this time," Caraway said.No charges have been filed in this case.
