A police investigation is underway after a verbal dispute at a party in Thibodaux, Friday evening, led to a shooting and killing of a 70-year-old woman and a 47-year-old man.

One man was arrested on Friday night and another, who was at an area hospital in Baton Rouge on Saturday, is now in police custody.

Thibodaux Police say the shooting took place in the 900 block of St. Charles Street just before 7:30 P.M. when Terrione R. Thomas, 26, of Baton Rouge, was involved in a verbal dispute with Alvin Turner, 47.

They say Terrione left the party, retrieved a gun and returned to the party and began shooting Turner.

Those shots ultimately killed Turner and a second victim. Linda M. Johnson, 70, was struck by the gunfire and died from her injuries.

A man who police say was accessory after the fact is being charged with one-count of 2nd Degree Murder. Timothy R. Thomas, 38, of Gray, was taken into police custody and remains at the Lafourche Parish Correction Complex with a No Bond Hold.

Terrione was located at an out-of-town hospital and taken into custody by the Baton Rouge Police Department. Police say he remains in their custody and will later be transported back to Thibodaux for interview and booking procedures. The incident remains under investigation.
