FRENCH CAMP - A 40-year-old French Camp woman was shot and killed in her home in the 10200 block of South Janet Road about 4:30 p.m. on Friday.

When deputies arrived at the scene, they found the woman with a gunshot wound. First responders attempted CPR. The women died at the scene.

Deputies detained two men and interviewed them. One of the men was the victim’s long-time boyfriend and the other man was the boyfriend’s relative. Deputies ended up arresting the boyfriend on murder charges.

The victim’s children were home when the shooting happened, but did not witness the crime.

The motive behind the shooting is unclear at this time.

Deputies stretched yellow crime scene tape around the home and blocked off some of the neighborhood to protect any possible evidence in the area and to keep bystanders away from the scene.
