Authorities are investigating a shooting on Blackwater Road in which a man allegedly shot and killed his daughter’s boyfriend Monday evening, an East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman said.
The shooting happened at 7:12 p.m. in the 11000 block of Blackwater Road, spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks said.
The victim’s identity was withheld pending notification of his family.
Deputies were initially called to the home at 5:30 p.m. because the homeowner wanted his daughter and her boyfriend removed from his property, Hicks said.
The pair had left the home before deputies arrived on scene, Hicks said.
The father called back at 7:10 p.m. to say the pair had returned, Hicks said.
While deputies were enroute, they received reports of a shot being fired at the home, Hicks said.
Deputies arrived to find the boyfriend dead, Hicks said.
The father was taken into custody for questioning, Hicks said.
No other information was available late Monday.
