5 dead after shooting spree in Louisiana

Pair of shootings leave 5 dead in Louisiana

Police are searching for an "armed and dangerous" 21-year-old man from Louisiana who they believe fatally shot his girlfriend, her father and her brother before driving 25 miles in a stolen pickup truck and killing both his parents in their trailer home.

Dakota Theriot was captured in Richmond County, Virginia, said a statement from Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office and the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office.

Authorities say Dakota Theriot shot and killed three people Saturday in Livingston Parish, near Baton Rouge, including the woman he was believed to be dating. They were identified as Billy Ernest, 43, Tanner Ernest, 17, and Summer Ernest, 20.

DeYoung said her brother, niece and nephew were good people who "trusted people too much".

He also faces three counts of first-degree murder and theft of a motor vehicle in Livingston Parish.

"We want to make sure that we as quickly as we possibly can, get this person in custody, behind bars where he belongs, where he needs to be", Ard told reporters at a news conference Saturday night.

'He lived there with the mom and dad for a little while, but was recently asked to leave with some disagreements, ' Ascension Sheriff Bobby Webre said.

The Ernests' neighbor Charlenne Bordelon told The Advocate the two youngest children, both under 8, in the Ernest family ran to her home early Saturday asking for help after the shooting.

Livingston Parish Sherriff's Office spokesperson Lisa Steele said there is no motive at this time.

U.S. crude oil refinery inputs decrease last week
EIA expects global oil production growth in 2019 to be led by countries that are not part of OPEC, particularly the United States. Net imports are expected to continue to fall, to an average of 1.1 million bpd this year, and to less than 100,000 bpd in 2020.

They think he may be heading towards MS in a 2004 Dodge Ram pickup truck with license plate number C583809.

Following the shooting, a 7-year-old and 1-year-old child were found in the Ernests' home, but they were not harmed. They were both 51, according to the sheriff.

Authorities say he is considered armed and risky.

Police say he is also suspected in the deaths of Billy, Tanner and Summer Ernest.

Elizabeth Theriot was found dead in her bedroom.

Saturday's two shootings were perhaps the bloodiest domestic violence-related altercation in our area in recent memory: In all, five dead from two families.

Webre said there was no reason to think Theriot was now targeting someone else but warned that because he's armed and unsafe: "Anybody he comes into contact with could be a target".

Investigators work the scene of a shooting on January 26 in Ascension Parish, La.
