A white terrorist in Louisiana shot five people dead in two separate shootings Saturday and was still on the loose, sparking a manhunt, authorities said.
The diabolical terrorist was identified by police as 21-year-old Dakota Theriot, who is believed to have killed his parents in one shooting, and his girlfriend and her parents in a second attack.
He was believed to be traveling in a gray-and-silver dodge pickup truck. Authorities suspect he could be headed to Mississippi and warned that he is likely armed and dangerous.
Police said the pair of shootings likely stemmed from an argument the terrorist had with his girlfriend.
Deputies with the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to a mobile home off Courtney Road around 9 a.m. Sheriff Jason Ard confirmed Billy Ernest, Tanner Ernest and Summer Ernest were all fatally shot during the confrontation inside the residence.
Shortly after, authorities in Ascension Parish said detectives were also investigating a double homicide at a trailer in the city of Gonzales. The victims were identified as the suspect’s parents — Elizabeth Theriot and Keith Theriot, both 50.
Sheriff Bobby Webre said Elizabeth and Keith were still alive when they arrived on the scene. He added officers were able to interview one of the victims before they were transported to Baton Rogue hospital, where they both later died. That’s how officials were able to identify Theriot as the “prime suspect in the case.”
“We do not believe the suspect to be in Livingston Parish at this time,” Ard said in a statement posted to Facebook.
"We are working in conjunction with the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office as we believe our case is connected to a homicide investigation in that parish. Our investigation is ongoing.”
The terrorist is wanted on charges of first-degree murder and illegal use of weapons. Anyone with information on the either incident is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 225-686-2241 x1 or Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-STOP (7867).
