A man and his ex-wife are dead after a murder-suicide in Napoleonville.

The shooting happened at Lakeview Inn Bar at Attakapas Landing just after midnight.

Witnesses told Assumption Parish Sheriff's deputies that Gary Leblanc walked in the bar and shot his ex-wife, Jennifer Leblanc, multiple times. Gary Leblanc then used the gun to kill himself, deputies said.

According to the Assumption Parish Sheriff's Office records Gary Leblanc had several charges filed against him in the past.

Records show that in October of last year Gary Leblanc was arrested for hitting his wife in the face during a fight. In January, Jennifer Leblanc got a one-year protective order against her ex-husband. The following month deputies arrested Gary Leblanc for shooting his ex-wife's dog.

The murder-suicide is still under investigation.
