2 killed in shooting at Jefferson complex

Posted: Updated:

Authorities in Jefferson Parish say two people were killed in an apparently drug-related shooting at a Metairie apartment complex.

Sheriff deputies tell The Times-Picayune the victims of Monday's shooting were 25-year-old Tacara Williams and 29-year-old Demektric Whitfield-Anderson, both of Memphis, Tenn.

Investigators say two unidentified gunmen opened fire on the vehicle in which the victims and another woman were sitting about 5:30 a.m. The third person was unharmed, authorities say.

A bullet struck an apartment window, cracking it but not injuring the 7-year-old boy sleeping in the room, deputies say.

Sheriff's spokesman Glen Boyd says the shooting appeared to be drug-related.

A search for suspects is underway.
