BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) – Two teens are dead in Bossier Parish after what deputies say, could be a murder-suicide.

Cars of friends and family lined the street leading up to the scene.

Authorities found a pickup truck pulled into a remote driveway. Inside, the bodies of two 16 year-olds were found: one male, one female.

"We're told the pickup is the one the young man always drove," says Lt. Ed Baswell, Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office.

Deputies say they got a call about two bodies inside of a truck on Viking Drive near Bossier City.

"At this point we think it was probably a murder suicide, but of course that needs more investigation," says Dr. John Chandler, Bossier Parish Coroner.

A gun was found in the truck and collected for evidence.

When asked were there gunshot wounds, Dr. Chandler replied "yes." And when asked were the gunshot wounds the cause of death, Dr. Chandler also replied "yes."

The teens identities have not been revealed but we're told they were reported missing late last night or early this morning.

"We're going to get all their records, all their reports, and get the background on these two teenagers, and how they ended up here," says Lt. Baswell.
