Dave Cohen Reporting
Northshore authorities say a man went on a rampage in Washington Parish, shooting a neighbor and shooting a cop.
It happened in Franklinton.
The man allegedly robbed and shot his neighbor, and when police arrived, shot and wounded an officer.
"The suspect shot through the door, striking one of the officers in the arm and also striking his vest," Trooper Greg Marchand said.
The neighbor is hospitalized.
The sheriff's office also says that the suspect also set his trailer house on fire. Emergency responders later found a dead body inside the home last night. WWL TV reports that the dead woman is the suspect's mother.
It all happened on 16th Avenue and Lenora in the Franklinton area.
The suspect is identified as 20-year-old Christopher Dillion.
We will have more details as they become available.
