A double shooting in south Shreveport left 2 people dead. Sheriff Steve Prator says deputies were called to 2743 Long Branch Lane just before 5 a.m. Sunday morning.

36-year-old Perry Bailey of Barksdale Air Force Base, was shot and mortally wounded by 39-year-old Brandan C. Brown of Bossier City, who then shot himself. Brown died at the Long Branch Lane address. Bailey was taken to Ochsner LSU Health hospital where he died at 5:39 a.m.

Detectives were told by the female homeowner that her former boyfriend (Brown) broke into the residence through the master bedroom window and shot her current boyfriend (Bailey). The woman and five children in the house - ages 6 to 17 - were able to escape through the kitchen door and call 911 from a cell phone. As they were fleeing the residence, the woman said she heard another shot inside the home.

Deputies arrived to find both the intruder and the male victim lying on the master bedroom floor with gunshot wounds. The intruder died at the scene and the male victim was transported by Fire District #6 to the hospital, but later died.

The investigation is being conducted by Det. Matthew Lucky. No further information is available at this time.
