UPDATE: Children run for help after Jennings woman shot & killed; man in custody

UPDATE: The identity of a woman shot and killed overnight in Jennings has been released.

Police say 32-year-old Antoinetta Davis was found dead from a gunshot wound. A suspect is in custody after six children inside the home ran to police for help just before 2:00am Monday.

According to police, officers responded to a home in the 7000 block of Florence Pl. around 1:55 a.m. after the victim’s children reported their mother had been injured.

Police said when they arrived, officers found Davis dead from a gunshot wound.

Authorities said the six children, all preteens, were inside the home when the shooting happened.

A 40-year-old suspect, an ex-boyfriend of the victim and father of some of the children, turned himself into Justice Services in Clayton around 5 a.m.

It is unknown if the children witnessed the murder, but police say some of them found the body.

Authorities said more information would be released as the investigation continues.
