ST. BERNARD PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

The Louisiana State Police just wrapped up its investigation into a St. Bernard deputy's fatal shooting of a suspect.

In September of 2015, troopers say 21-year-old Tyrone Bass was shot and killed at the intersection of St. Bernard Highway and Andres Street.

Investigators say Bass hit the deputy in the back of the head with a railroad spike.

Bass died at the scene. The injured deputy was treated at a hospital and released.

It is standard procedure for State Police to investigate a deputy-involved shooting.
 
A spokesman for the Louisiana State Police says the findings have been turned over to the St. Bernard District Attorney's Office for review.
