Two sheriff’s deputies were shot to death and two were wounded during a series of linked shootings early today (Thursday) in LaPlace, Louisiana, according to CNN.

The first shooting — where one deputy was wounded — happened in a parking lot at a steel plant in LaPlace, about 25 miles west of New Orleans, St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff Mike Tregre said.

The second happened when deputies went to a nearby trailer park to investigate the first shooting and were ambushed by a man armed with what Tregre described as an assault rifle, he said.

He identified the dead as Deputies Brandon Nielsen, 34, and Jeremy Triche, 28. Nielsen was married with five children and Triche had a wife and a 2-year-old son, Tregre told reporters at an afternoon news conference.
