Police: Man Went On Shooting Rampage Before Setting House On Fire

A Franklinton man is under armed guard at River Parish Hospital after investigators say he went on a rampage.

They say he robbed and shot his neighbor Thursday night near his home on 16th Street. The suspect then shot a responding officer in the arm and set his own house on fire before being captured by police.

When the fire was finally put out, the dead body of the suspect’s mother was found inside his home.

Officials say the officer is in stable condition.

The names of the suspect and victims have not been released.
