LSP said Saturday that Kendall Lemoine, 50, died Friday night at the Rapides Regional Trauma Center in Alexandria.

State police said back on April 11, Winn Parish deputies went to Lemoine's home to serve a civil warrant, when they were allegedly met by Lemoine and his mother Betty, 71.

LSP said the Lemoines were armed and exchanged fire with deputies. Betty Lemoine died at the scene.

State police interviewed Sheriff Cranford Jordan and another deputy after the shooting.

At time of publication, nobody from the sheriff's office is on administrative leave. Sheriff Jordan said there are too few deputies to place anyone on administrative leave.

LSP is continuing to investigate and they have not identified a shooter at this time.
