Suspect in shooting that killed 2 is police chief's son

ST. GABRIEL, La. (AP) — Authorities say the son of the St. Gabriel police chief fatally shot two brothers who were trying to get inside his girlfriend's home to continue an earlier fight.

Multiple news outlets report 25-year-old Kevin Ambeau Jr. shot and killed 26-year-old Dominique Dunbar and 30-year-old Rove Lodge Sunday night after the brothers tried to enter Ambeau's girlfriend's trailer and a gun fight broke out. Ambeau is the son of St. Gabriel Police Chief Kevin Ambeau.

Witnesses say a group of people had been arguing about money and several fistfights broke out.
The fight continued at a trailer and the brothers were shot multiple times. Dunbar died at the scene. Lodge was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police questioned and released Ambreau Monday. No one has been charged yet.
