GONZALES, La. (AP) - Authorities have said that a Louisiana man and woman have been arrested in the shooting death of another man in Gonzales.

The Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post on Tuesday that Kirpatrick Morrison, 24, and Lauren Donaldson, 22, were acquaintances of Christopher Goudeau, 23.

Authorities said that Morrison and Donaldson were at Goudeau's residence when an argument turned into a physical altercation.

Morrison shot the victim and the pair fled the crime scene. The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office apprehended them after they were involved in a traffic accident in Baton Rouge.

Morrison and Donaldson were charged with first-degree murder. Morrison was also booked on a count of aggravated assault. It's unclear if they have lawyers.
