PLAQUEMINE, La. (AP) — Iberville Parish sheriff's deputies have identified the two men found shot to death inside a vehicle in a field off La. Highway 1.

Sheriff Brett Stassi tells The Advocate a motorcycle deputy found 38-year-old Ronald Anthony Harrell of Baton Rouge and 46-year-old Junius Dedrick of Ventress in the vehicle at 6:30 a.m. Monday.

Maj. Johnny Blanchard suspects that Harrell and Dedrick were shot by a third party. He said the two men knew each other.

The sheriff said the vehicle appeared to have run off the road.
