Three police officers were wounded in a fatal standoff with a gunman in Louisiana on Sunday, officials said.

Kenner Police were called to the 700 block of Farm Avenue at approximately 9:45 a.m. local time after two people were shot outside of a residence, according to a statement from Jefferson Parish Sheriff Joseph Lopinto and Kenner Police Chief Keith Conley.

The residence belonged to a family member of Michael Lathers, 31, who was wanted for an attempted murder and armed robbery that occurred earlier in the week in Kenner, officials said.

In a standoff with Lathers, three Kenner police officers were wounded and Lathers was fatally shot by a Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy, according to the statement.
