Authorities: 3 brothers, shooter killed in murder-suicide

BAKER, La. (AP) – Authorities say three brothers were shot to death by a man who then killed himself in a rural area outside Baton Rouge early Sunday.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office says the men were found dead in a driveway after an argument broke out at about 12:30 a.m.

Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks told the Advocate that the men were watching football and listening to music at a neighbor’s house when they got into an argument over the music.

The suspected shooter was identified as Rodney Chemin, 60, and the three brothers as Joseph Allen, 57; Perry Allen, 55 and Mark Allen, 51. The four men were found dead outside Chemin’s house.

East Baton Rouge authorities could not be reached immediately for comment.
