Man killed on Hwy 27 in Sulphur, three people in custody

SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) -

Authorities believe a man was shot in a drive-by shooting on Highway 27 near Jerry's Marine in Sulphur. According to authorities, at least one person of interest is in custody (a man), and two other people, a man and a woman, have been arrested as well.

Deputies got the call around 10:30 Wednesday night after several shots were fired. The victim was brought to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Sheriff Mancuso said the victim had trauma to the head and other parts of his body, but isn't sure if it was gunshot wounds that killed him. His name is not being released until next of kin is notified.

Meanwhile deputies say the victim was not alone at the time of the shooting. He and another man were walking down Hwy 27, when the shots were fired. Mancuso said they still don't have a motive, but the witness has been very cooperative and has given them some good information to go on.

According to Mancuso, SWAT members have been deployed to three undisclosed locations in the area, where the two other persons of interest may be hiding. One of those locations was off South Myles Lane near Carlyss, where after a near two-hour standoff a man and a woman were taken into custody.

At this time there's no word on if any of the people brought in for questioning have been charged with a crime.

We'll of course keep you updated as more information becomes available.

    If you have ever had imaging done at a medical office or hospital, then had to go to another office for follow-up, chances are, you have had to go with a CD of your file or paper copy. That is changing thanks to a medical image sharing network.

    For years we've heard about the need for a new I-10 Calcasieu River Bridge. There is a time line and an upcoming public meeting is part of the process of determining what will happen and when. Though the discussion is usually about a new I-10 bridge, the proposed project includes improvements between I-10 and 210 interchanges. The bridge has safety issues because of how steep it is, congestion,  no shoulders and short entrance ramps that don't meet today's design ...

Republican senators are drafting a proposal which likely won't include any replacement ideas but a "Skinny repeal" that would take out unpopular parts of the Affordable Care Act. Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy explained today how the repeal would impact Americans.
