The Orange County Sheriff's Office Sunday identified the man killed in a fatal shooting Saturday at about 10 a.m.
Deputies say 60-year-old Ronald Thomas Barnes was found dead with several gunshot wounds in a home in the 400 block of Florence near Vidor. According to reports, Barnes was involved in a disagreement with 47-year-old Steven James Coutee, the owner of the home in which the shooting took place.
Deputies say the disagreement escalated to the point where both men produced a firearm and Coutee shot Barnes. Coutee subsequently called 911.
Justice of the Peace Janice Menard has ordered on autopsy.
Deputies say the 47-year-old man is cooperating with investigators and no arrest has been made at this time.
