JPSO Investigating Double Homicide In Metairie

JPSO Investigating Double Homicide In Metairie

The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating a double homicide in Metairie early Monday morning.

The JPSO says three people staying at the Super 8 on the I-10 service road near Clearview left for a nearby apartment complex around 5 a.m. to meet with two others. When they arrived, the driver felt something was wrong and began to drive away, when the two suspects opened fire on the car.

They fled back down the service road and went through a fence, ending up on the grassy breakdown area next to the I-10 eastbound on-ramp from northbound Clearview.

29-year-old Demektric Whitfield-Anderson and 25-year-old Tacara Williams, both of Memphis, Tennessee, died on the scene. A woman in the car with them was not hurt and is believed to have made the original 911 call.

If you can help investigators, you're asked to call Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
