Here's a look at the four shootings:
On the morning of July 8, at 621 La. 960 in East Feliciana, Thomas Bass was killed at his house. Officials said the 62-year-old was found dead close to his home, where the shooter would have had to come up on the property.
In a Sept. 12 drive-by shooting, 47-year-old Buck Hornsby was wounded as he was exercising in the morning near the roadside of his property at 658 La. 63 in East Feliciana.
A week later, on Sept. 19, 66-year-old Carroll Breeden was killed about 5:30 p.m. as he sprayed weeds by the road in the front yard of his Pride home, just over the parish line from Clinton. A vehicle drove by and gunned him down, killing him in front of the family's lifelong home at 15288 Port Hudson-Pride Road, authorities said.
And on Monday, Oct. 9, East Feliciana deputies responded to the fatal shooting of 48-year-old Brad DeFranceschi, a camp ranger at the Avondale Scout Reservation in Clinton, at 6897 La. 63, just east of Clinton. DeFranceschi was shot multiple times in front of his home.
