Two people were shot to death and a third injured in a shooting that happened at a trailer in Panola, west of Bethany Friday night.

fatalshootingPanola County Chief Deputy John Depresca says a 9-1-1 call came in at around 8:45 pm that shots were fired on a private road near County Road 334 between Panola and Bethany.

Deputies arrived to find two victims lying on the ground in front of the trailer house.  Depresca said additional deputies searched the trailer and discovered there were no shooters in the house, but a man’s body was found face down in the living room with two gunshot wounds.

Medical personnel determined one of the victims found outside was still alive and the other was deceased, according to the chief. Air Ambulance was called and the victim was flown to LSU Hospital in Shreveport.

Depresca said numerous shell casings were discovered on the ground in front of the trailer house and a passing motorist reported he saw three black males leaving the driveway of the residence in a gray or black vehicle, possibly a Nissan.

The identities of the two deceased and the surviving victim are being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

Depresca said investigators will be trying to interview the surviving victim to find out a description of the shooters, who haven’t been identified.

No arrests have been made.
