“As they approached him, he ran off,” the sheriff’s office statement continued. “The suspect fired multiple shots at the officers. The officers returned fire, hitting the suspect multiple times. The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. His firearm was recovered.” The officer-involved shooting occurred around 2:45 p.m. m., authorities said. The Jefferson Parish coroner’s office later identified the two employees who died at the shipyard as Nakie James Brown, 48, and Dustin Parrie Jr., 20, both of Harvey, reported.

The suspected gunman who was later killed by authorities was identified as Willis Thomas Jr., 31, of Harvey, Jefferson Parish Coroner Gerry Cvitanovich said Monday night. “They were all part of the same team,” Jefferson Parish Sheriff Joe Lopinto said, according to news station 4WWL. “So, he [the suspect] was targeting people from his crew.”


Lopinto added that the alleged shooter, who was recently fired from his job, showed up at the shipyard unannounced and shot the two employees. It is unknown if a confrontation occurred before the shooting or why the alleged gunman was fired from his employer. In addition, the sheriff said the suspect’s mother picked him up near the shipyard and took him to the apartment complex, but he was unaware that her son was allegedly connected to the shooting.

In response to the incident, FMT Shipyard and Repair released a statement, according to WDSU: “A tragic shooting occurred this afternoon at the FMT Shipyard in Harvey, LA. The Company understands that the shooting involving a shooter and two victims occurred today between workers hired at the facility. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.”Read More……..
