One woman shot in Golden Meadow dies from injuries

Shooter takes his own life

One of two women injured in a shooting incident in Golden Meadow Saturday has died as a result of her injuries. Michelle Stone, 29, of Golden Meadow, was pronounced dead at 11:25 a.m. on Sunday, May 27. The other female victim is currently in stable condition at University Medical Center in New Orleans.

Stone was the girlfriend of Shane Billiot, 46, of Golden Meadow who shot and killed himself after allegedly shooting the two women.

Through investigation, detectives learned Billiot had become upset with the two women on Saturday, May 26. At one point, Billiot brandished a shotgun, and the two women ran from the residence and entered a truck in an attempt to flee. One of Stone and Billiot’s children also entered the truck.

Billiot emerged from the residence and fired two rounds into the truck, striking both women. The child was not harmed.

The initial call of the shooting came in at 2:20 p.m., and deputies responded to West 223rd Street, just south of the limits of the Town of Golden Meadow. Upon the deputies’ arrival, the other female victim exited the truck and informed deputies of what had occurred. Moments later, Billiot shot himself in the head with the shotgun.

The women each sustained wounds to their head and neck and were transported to University Medical Center in New Orleans following the incident.
