Saturday, June 7, at about 10:15 a.m., the Orange County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call in reference to a shooting at a residence in the 400 block of Florence Street in Vidor.

Upon arrival, deputies found a 60 year old deceased, white male inside the residence. The male appeared to have  several gunshot wounds. Also in the residence was an uninjured 47 year old white male, who was the homeowner. He was the person who called the authorities.

The initial investigation revealed that the two men were at the residence when they got into a disagreement that escalated to both men producing a firearm. The 47 year old man shot the 60 year old man, and then called 9-1-1.

Justice of the Peace Janice Menard arrived on scene with investigators, and ordered an autopsy of the deceased. The 47 year old man is cooperating with investigators and no arrest has been made at this time.

OCSO is still investigating the incident.
