Louisiana Deputy Killed

Posted: Updated:
 ABBEVILLE, La. (AP) - The Vermilion Parish Sheriff's Office says an off-duty deputy was found shot to death after he had called in a report about two suspicious people.

The off-duty patrol deputy's name has not been released.

Sheriff Mike Couvillon (KOO'-vee-ahn) said in a news release that the deputy was mowing grass south of Abbeville on Monday afternoon when he phoned the Sheriff's Office to report seeing two suspicious people. Another deputy dispatched to the area found the off-duty deputy fatally shot.

Couvillon said a witness reported seeing a gold Lexus that had crashed in a ditch in the area and two men driving away in the deputy's pickup truck with a utility trailer and lawn mower. The truck was later found abandoned.

State police were aiding the investigation.
