HOMER, La. – The suspected gunman in what is believed to be a murder-suicide has been identified by Claiborne Parish authorities.
Sheriff Ken Bailey said Question Woods, 36, of Haynesville was the shooter in the death of Janette West, 43, of Homer.
Around 6 p.m. Thursday, authorities responded to a 911 call for help at a home in the 1100 block of White Oak Road, where they found West dead in her front yard.
Woods was later located just miles away inside his pickup on Highway 534 in neighboring Haynesville, where authorities say he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Bailey could not say on what may have led to homicide, but he did say the pair was reportedly dating and that West’s son was present at the home when the shooting occurred. It is unclear who made the 911 call.
