La. suspect is fatally shot; Driver tried to run over deputies

By Michelle Hunter

Two Jefferson Parish sheriff's deputies investigating a tip about a drug deal early Wednesday opened fire on a car after the driver tried to run both over, officials said. The driver was killed and a passenger wounded, they said.

The identity of the man killed just after 3 a.m. in the 300 block of Iris Avenue in Jefferson was not available Wednesday evening. The coroner's office had the name but was trying to locate the man's next-of-kin.
