It was just before 4:30 am this morning when the sound of gunfire erupted in the normally peaceful town of Blanchard.

Moments later, Caddo Parish Sheriff's Department deputies were on the scene in the 200 block of Sand Valley in Blanchard, according to Sheriff Steve Prator.

Upon arriving on the scene, deputies learned that a man had been shot. He was immediately transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

According to the Caddo Sheriff's Department, detectives and CSI are still investigating the shooting to determine exactly what happened, but deputies say it appears to be a domestic case.

We are still awaiting the Caddo Parish Coroner's Office to release the identity of the deceased and once they do, we will be sure to follow up with that identification.

Obviously this is an ongoing investigation, so please allow deputies all the space needed to properly investigate this tragedy.
