A St. Francisville man was shot and killed Monday morning by his uncle in the Independence community in West Feliciana Parish, authorities said.

Anthony Nixon, 30, shot his nephew Brandon Nixon, 28, just before 11:30 a.m. on Coates Road, the West Feliciana Parish Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday in a news release. The two lived together, the release says.

Nixon, 5496 Blackmore Road, was booked into the West Feliciana Parish Detention Center on a count of second-degree murder, but his bail had not been set.
