BREAUX BRIDGE, La. (AP) - Authorities have identified a man they say killed his wife and 3-year-old granddaughter before his son shot him to death in St. Martin Parish.

Multiple news outlets report the shooting happened just before 8:00 p.m. Tuesday in Breaux Bridge. St. Martin Parish sheriff’s deputies say 58-year-old Clifford Blanchard shot and killed his wife, 72-year-old Leola Blanchard, and his granddaughter, 3-year-old Ashlynn Blanchard.

The couple’s son, Scott Blanchard, called 911 reporting that he also had been shot by Clifford Blanchard.

Authorities say Clifford Blanchard suffered a fatal gunshot wound in a struggle with his son following the shootings. Scott Blanchard, who is also Ashlynn’s father, remains hospitalized.

The investigation is ongoing.
