Reports from CNN affirm that 21-year-old Dakota Theriot is responsible for the cold-blooded murder for five people in Louisiana, with two of the five deceased being Theriot’s parents.
The aforementioned shootings occurred yesterday close to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Theriot executed his parents and three other individuals by shooting them. Authorities are currently calling the atrocity “one of the worst domestic violence incidents.”
The victims of Theriot are Billy Ernest, Summer Ernest, Tanner Ernest, Keith Theriot, and Elizabeth Theriot. At this time, there are still a series of unknown factors behind the shooting; more specifically, law enforcement officials are unsure of exactly what motivated Theriot to murder his parents and three other individuals. Authorities also have yet to make contact with anyone who knew Theriot well.
The 21-year-old was most recently seen driving a gray and silver 2004 Dodge pickup; the license plate comes from the state of Louisiana with the number C583809.
Bobby Webre, the Ascension Parish Sheriff, has provided some statements to the public about the situation involving Theriot:
“We don’t know what kind of resources he has or how far he can run. But we don’t think he has great means and a lot of resources.”
Dakota Theriot is currently looking at charges of home invasion, illegal use of weapons, and first-degree murder.
