A Prairieville man has been arrested in connection with a home invasion that left one elderly man dead and another hospitalized.

Early Friday morning, deputies arrested 46-year-old David Foreman Jr. on charges of first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, illegal use of a weapon, possession of a firearm by convicted felon, possession of stolen firearm, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The arrest comes after 61-year-old Byron Hayes and 70-year-old Douglas Tillotson were found shot in a home on Tillotson Road in Prairieville Thursday morning. Hayes was found dead at the scene, and Tillotson was taken to a local hospital in critical condition.

Investigative leads led detectives to Foreman's residence on Thursday evening. Authorities say he had a crack pipe on his person, and he was arrested on multiple charges.

The investigation is ongoing, as more charges may be filed. Anyone with any information on this case is encouraged to contact the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office.
