MAUREPAS - Deputies are investigating a shooting at a home in Livingston Parish that left one man dead and sent the property owner to the hospital. 

The sheriff's office said deputies found the men after a burglary was reported Monday along Old River Road.

Deputies arrived there to find one man dead and another in need of immediate medical attention. The dead man was identified as Brian Luke, 47, and the second man was identified as the homeowner, 75-year-old James Troy Millet. 

The department said the men knew each other prior to the shooting and that there was apparently a confrontation between the two leading up to the gunfire. 

No charges have been filed as of Wednesday afternoon.
