There was not much celebration for the Guidry family on Mardi Gras morning.
Two brothers, Mike Guidry, 24, and Gary Guidry, who turned 25 years old on Tuesday, were shot dead in their home Tuesday morning at 8 o’clock. They died due to wounds from the gun shots. The Abbeville Police did not release information on how many times each one was shot or what type of gun was used in the shooting.
The Guidrys lived on the 800 block of Alphonse Street, which is off of Graceland Street.
A few hours after family members located the Guidry boys dead, law enforcement officers located the alleged shooter, 17-year-old D’Andre Jamal Senegal. He was arrested on Pine Street.
Senegal was charged with two counts of first degree murder. He now sits in the Vermilion Parish Law Enforcement Center awaiting bond.
Neighbors, who are still in disbelief, said they heard the killings were about a disagreement between the Guidrys and Senegal.
These two murders are the first murders in Abbeville in 2013. Last year there were seven total murders, and five are still unsolved.
The Abbeville Police Department is still conducting interviews on witnesses and continuing the investigation. Anyone having information in this matter is asked to contact the Abbeville Police Department at 337-893-2511.
The Abbeville Police Department, in a press release, thanked the Vermilion Parish Narcotics Task Force, the Vermilion Parish Sheriff’s Department, the Louisiana State Police, the Lafayette City Marshal’s Office and the Lafayette Police Department for their assistance in this investigation.
This is not the first time two people were killed on Mardi Gras in Abbeville. Around 2005, two died as a result of a shooting on “The Front” during Mardi Gras.
