LAROSE, La. - The Lafourche Parish Sheriff's office is investigating a double homicide at an apartment complex in Larose.

Deputies were called to the 100 block of W. 4th Street in Larose around 11:45 a.m. Sunday.

Sheriff Craig Webre's office said the victims were identified as Nikki Landry, 41, and Harry Lefort, 54, of Cut Off.  

Both were found dead at Landry’s apartment, each having suffered multiple gunshots wounds. Their bodies were discovered by a member of Landry’s family.

"While a motive has not yet been determined, investigators say they do not believe it to be robbery based on evidence," said spokesman Brennan Matherne in a statement.

Detectives say Lefort and Landry were acquaintances.

The victims are being taken to the Jefferson Parish Coroner’s Office for autopsies.
