Men apparently killed each other in moving car
MARRERO - A Jefferson Parish sheriff's spokesman says a drug deal gone sour apparently prompted two men to shoot and kill each other in a moving car, which ran into a house and caught fire.
Col. John Fortunato said Saturday that the passenger died with a stolen gun in his hand and a large bag of marijuana under his arm. A second gun was near the driver's body. Fortunato says bullets and spent shell casings found were found in the 2011 Buick La Crosse.
He identifies the driver as 35-year-old driver Tory Sanders of Marrero and the passenger as 26-year-old Byron Price of St. Rose.
The car hit the house shortly before 8:30 p.m. Friday.
Fortunato says the fire apparently started because the car remained in gear with the front wheels turning.
