HOUMA, La. (WGNO) — Two people are dead after detectives say their bodies were discovered in a Terrebonne Parish hotel room.

According to details released by the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to the Holiday Inn on Martin Luther King Boulevard in Houma around 12 p.m. on Wednesday. The 911 caller said a housekeeper had discovered the bodies of a man and woman inside a hotel room.

When police arrived, they found the bodies of the two people, both of whom had been shot. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
