PARADIS, La. (AP) — Authorities in Louisiana say a man has been taken into custody after a shooting that killed his 15-year-old son and seriously wounded the boy’s mother.

The man suffered non-life-threatening injuries in Sunday’s shooting, and the couple’s 9-year-old daughter, who ran to a neighbor’s for help, was not injured. Times-Picayune cites a release from the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office saying there’s no indication anyone outside the immediate family was involved.

Authorities have not released a motive or a suspect for the shooting.
