RIVER RIDGE, La. (AP) - A Metairie man is dead after a pre-dawn domestic dispute Sunday.

Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand says that 44-year-old Bobby Elder died after entering the River Ridge house of his ex-girlfriend’s current companion.

The new companion, 32-year-old Robert Esteves of River Ridge, shot and killed Elder after officials say Elder pointed a gun at 35-year-old Karen Collins and ordered her out of bed. As Elder was taking Collins to the front door, Esteves retrieved a shotgun and fired at least twice. Elder fired back multiple times, sustaining wounds that killed him before he could be taken to a hospital. Esteves was shot in the arm and treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

Collins, who fled during the shooting and called police, was not injured.

No charges have been filed.
