Wife of the suspect among the dead


RACELAND, La. (AP) — A southern Louisiana man attacked his former in-laws and the head of a hospital where he'd worked, killing three — including his wife — before killing himself, authorities said.

The shootings happened about 45 miles southwest of New Orleans on Thursday, the first reported by Lafourche Parish Councilman Louis Phillip Gouaux about 6:40 p.m. at a home in Lockport, Parish Sheriff's Office spokesman Brennan Matherne said in a news release.
