Baton Rouge police are continuing to investigate an apparent attempted murder and suicide at a residence on Banyan Trace Drive.

A BRPD spokesman says Daniel Johnson of St. Francisville died at the scene of the double shooting Tuesday morning, while his girlfriend, LaQuetra Pidgeon, a mother of three, was hospitalized in critical condition.

An argument is believed to have preceded the shooting.  Investigators say Johnson is believed to have shot the woman before turning the gun on himself.
