Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff's deputies are investigating a triple shooting that left two people dead and another seriously injured.

According to a news release, detectives believe that 38-yeaer-old Rouche Coleman shot and killed his estranged wife, 35-year-old Kesia Coleman, and seriously injured her juvenile son before shooting and killing himself.

Authorities say Kesia Coleman called deputies around 4 a.m. Friday in reference to a suspicious person entering her home.

During the call, deputies heard what could have been shots fired, and at some point Kesia Coleman stopped responding to deputies.

The shooting remains under investigation.
