St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office Spokeswoman Megan Vizena says a 27-year-old woman from Washington is being questioned by detectives for allegedly shooting her parents.

Vizena says they are questioning Jamie Kristen Fontenot.

Vizena says,


“On Wednesday, September 17, 2014, at approximately 9:10PM, deputies responded to a report of a shooting at a residence on the Grand Prairie Highway near Washington. Upon arrival, deputies found 27 year-old, Jamie Fontenot sitting on the front porch bearing a firearm. Deputies were able to safely detain Fontenot with no incident.”

Detectives say Fontenot’s 59-year-old father is currently in critical condition, and her 58-year-old mother was treated and released from the hospital.

Vizena adds that their investigation is ongoing, and they will release further information as it becomes available.
