DENHAM SPRINGS - A 74-year-old man reportedly killed a woman before shooting himself in an apparent murder-suicide Monday night.

Investigators said the bodies were discovered around 10 p.m. Monday on Acadiana Avenue. The sheriff's office identified the two as 73-year-old Patricia Blue and 74-year-old Carl Altazin.

Few details were released about the shooting, but deputies said it appeared that Altazin shot Blue before killing himself. The sheriff's office reported that the two were "longtime acquaintances" and  had reportedly gotten into an argument earlier in the day.

According to Livingston Parish News, Altazin was arrested in 2016 and 2019 for domestic violence. 

An investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
