The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office said that three brothers have been shot dead by a man who then committed suicide.

The four bodies were discovered after an argument broke out about 12.30 a.m. in Baker, near Baton Rouge.

The suspected shooter was identified as 60-year-old Rodney Chemin. He is accused of killing his 3 close friends, who were identified as Joseph Allen, 57, and his younger brothers Perry, 55, and Mark, 51.

Casey Rayborn Hicks, spokeswoman for the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office, said that the 4 men had been watching football and listening to music at the home of Chemin’s cousin, Dwayne Crumholt, before the shooting.

The 3 brothers and Chemin allegedly got into an argument over the music and then went back to Chemin’s house. When they were in front of the house, Chemin shot them.

Coroner Dr. William Clark said that Perry Allen suffered multiple gunshot wounds while his brothers died from one
gunshot wound to the chest while Chemin died of a self inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
