METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

A 56-year-old father and his 25-year-old son are dead following a shooting in Metairie.

The incident happened around 11:50 p.m. Wednesday in the 3700 block of Clifford Drive.

Officers arriving on the scene found David Pence, 56, shot multiple times in a living room chair. Nicholas Pence, 25, was found lying on the living room floor with multiple gunshot wounds, deputies say. Both men died on the scene.

Jefferson Parish Coroner Dr. Gerry Cvitanovich said the men were killed with a shotgun. The father was shot in his head, abdomen and leg. His son was shot twice in the face and chest. The gunshots were from close range. No weapon has been recovered.

A Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office spokesman said the coroner's report show the father and son were "executed, plain and simple."

Investigators say they were alerted of the incident by a woman who was allegedly inside of a bedroom when the shooting happened. The woman has been identified as David's wife and Nicholas's mother.

The woman told deputies that she heard what sounded like glass breaking and went to investigate. She told authorities that she discovered her husband and son unresponsive in the living room.

Investigators say there are no signs of forced entry.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact homicide detectives at (504) 354-5300 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.

    Solar panels lighting up New Orleans East

    Solar energy is blanketing one neighborhood even after state tax credits disappeared.
