VERNON PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

State police said two Abbeville men have been arrested on first-degree murder charges in shooting of Allen Bares Jr., an off-duty Vermilion Parish sheriff's deputy.

"Shortly before 4 p.m. Monday, deputy Bares was near the intersection of South Hospital Drive and Cougar Drive outside of Abbeville," Hammons said Tuesday in a news release."Bares observed Taylor and Richard acting suspiciously. Bares identified himself to the suspects and contacted the Vermilion Parish Sheriff's Office. When responding deputies arrived at the location, they located Deputy Bares who had been shot multiple times."
