HAMMOND- Neighbors said a grandmother was on her way to pick-up her grandchild and daughter when the daughter was shot and killed in a murder-suicide Monday morning.

Brandon Colona, 27, shot and killed his girlfriend, Theresa Doby,22, before turning the gun on himself. Deputies found the couple's five-month-old baby crying in the living room.

"She was screaming, 'he killed my baby... He killed my baby,'" a neighbor said of Doby's mother.

Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Deputies taped-off the area and collected evidence on Brittani Court for hours.

Investigators said the baby, in good health, was placed with other relatives.
