HARAHAN, La. (WVUE) - The Jefferson Parish coroner’s office says a woman killed in Harahan was shot by a suspect and not police.

The suspect was involved in a shootout with officers.

Officials say Arseneaux succumbed to her injuries.

“There were no projectiles recovered at autopsy that were from the Law Enforcement duty weapons which were used in the shooting of the suspect in this case.,” the coroner’s office said.

No police officers were injured.
