Two sheriff’s deputies have been gunned down and two more injured during an incident in Louisiana, USA, on Thursday.

It followed an incident where an off duty deputy working security at a construction site was shot and killed by an offender who made off in a vehicle. This was later traced to a trailer park.

Officers arrived and arrested someone at the front of a property, meanwhile the suspect came out the back with an assault rifle and gunned down 3 officers killing two of them. Five people have since been arrested. Two people have been identified as shooting the officers who were from¬†St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Department.

Kyle Joekel was identified as one of the shooters. He had been on the local most wanted list for a year after evading arrest in August 2011.

The slain officers were named as Brandon Nielsen, 34, and Jeremy Triche, 27.
