At 4:09 PM on Wednesday February 27, 2013 Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Deputies received a call of two people found dead inside a home in the 100 block of Lebesque Road.  Deputies arrived to find a male and female resident who had both sustained gunshot wounds, both victims were lifeless and later pronounced dead by the Lafayette Parish Coroner.  The investigation continues at this time with investigators interviewing family members, friends, neighbors and others who may have had contact with deceased sometime today.  Investigators believe the deaths occurred between Noon and 4 PM, but have not established any further details.  The identities of the victims are being withheld until Thursday morning as family members are still being notified.     

Investigators have confirmed that four adults lived in the home and all were immediate family members, the other two residents have been located and are cooperating with the investigators.  No obvious forced entry was noted and deputies are awaiting the completion of the Forensic processing of the scene to allow family into the home to determine if anything is missing.
