"BATON ROUGE, LA — Two adults are dead and a child is in critical condition after what investigators say was a murder-suicide involving a man and his estranged wife early Friday morning.
"The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office said deputies responded to the 2800 block of Magazine Drive in the Maison Deville neighborhood, which is off Sherwood Forest Boulevard near I-12, around 4 a.m.
"Detectives said Rouche Coleman, 38, shot Kesia Coleman, 35, shot her son and then turned the gun on himself. Rouche Coleman and Kesia Coleman died at the scene. The boy was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. His name was not given.
"Authorities said Kesia Coleman called the sheriff's office around 4 a.m. to report a suspicious person breaking into her home. Those were some of the last words she would ever speak. Her plea for help was too late."
