A Tickfaw man fatally shot his wife during an argument Friday night, then took his own life with the same gun, the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday.

Deputies responded to the Ewing Drive home of Steven and Susan Roumillat around 9:15 p.m. Friday, after receiving a call about a disturbance with weapons, sheriff’s spokeswoman Dawn Panepinto said in a news release.

Deputies found Steven Roumillat, 56, unresponsive and, while securing the rest of the home, located the body of 52-year-old Susan Roumillat.

“During this difficult time, our thoughts and prayers remain with the Roumillat family,” Sheriff Daniel Edwards said in the news release.
