Dave Cohen Reporting
Cops say a man shot and killed his wife and 12-year-old son in Gonzales this morning and then said he was about to jump into the Mississippi River.
"We have a horrible tragedy," Ascension Parish Deputy Tony Bacala said. "The deputies went inside and found Dewona Green and their 12 year old son, Ronald Green Jr., both dead. They had both been shot."
He says Green had called someone around 2:30am and told them he committed the murder and was going to jump off the bridge.
"Ronald Green Senior's car was found on top of the Veterans Memorial Bridge in St. John Parish," according to the deputy.
