3 killed, 1 injured; police say motive drugs, cash

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Baton Rouge police say drugs and money were the motive for a shooting that killed three people and wounded a fourth.

Sgt. Don Kelly tells The Advocate that at least three men barged in through a front door early Tuesday, demanding drugs and cash.

He identifies those killed as 63-year-old Matthew Holliday, his 59-year-old wife, Jeraldine Holliday, and 26-year-old Kaylar Holliday. He said Kaylar Holliday was related to the other two, but he did not know the relationship.

Kelly says a 23-year-old man was shot and wounded and a 47-year-old man was unharmed. Their names were withheld.

Court records show Matthew Holliday got a 2-year prison term 2005 for possessing marijuana and cocaine with intent to distribute, but the other two victims don't have criminal records.
