METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

The Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office has released the names of the victims of Wednesday morning’s quadruple shooting and stabbing.

The victims of the early morning shooting have been identified as 40-year-old Kyle Turner, 56-year-old John Edward Henry and 61-year-old Rosemary Charles. All three of the victims died from gunshot wounds to the head.

A fourth victim in the shooting has been identified as a 33-year-old woman. She is currently being treated at University Hospital where she is listed in stable condition.

During the investigation into the shooting, the body of a man, identified as 56-year-old Harold Frisard was later found in another apartment. Frisard died as a result of multiple stab wounds to the head.

Investigators do not know how or if the man was involved in the initial shooting.

Jefferson Parish authorities say the shooting happened in the 2500 block of Pasadena Avenue.

Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Department spokesman Col. John Fortunato said a woman called 911 around 3:30 a.m. saying she had been shot in the face.

When deputies arrived, they found the woman who called suffering from a gunshot wound. They also found three others dead in the apartment.

Fortunato said deputies believe the shooter entered the apartment, shot the victims and left.

Authorities are looking for surveillance video from the surrounding area that may show the shooter entering and leaving the apartment.

Investigators are combing an apartment building on the block. About 15 deputies were on the scene shortly after the call came in.

A van from the Jefferson Parish Coroner's office is at the scene to remove the bodies from the apartment.

As investigators were on the scene, a loud bang was heard from inside the apartment. Authorities said a gun found on the scene discharged while investigators were examining it.

The shot caused deputies on the scene to race toward the apartment with their hands on their weapons.

The bullet hit concrete, injuring the deputy who was handling the weapon.
