SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Police have identified a couple involved in a deadly shooting-- Shreveport's 14th homicide this year.

They say the victim is Peter Bayone, 73.  His wife, Lavoni, 62, has been arrested and charged with second degree murder in the case.

Officers responded to Round Grove Street just after seven o'clock after they say a relative of a married couple dialed 9-1-1.

Chief Henry Whitehorn tells KSLA News 12 they arrested Lavoni Bayone who officers say shot and killed her husband while he was in the bathroom.

Neighbors say the wife has been in and out of the hospital due to mental illness.  However, police have not confirmed that.

"Not a thing, you know a while lot of people keep things in.  They never say anything about anything but they're just nice, that's all I know," said neighbor Mattie Dotson.

Police say they're still investigating a motive in the shooting.  They say it does not appear there was any type of physical altercation before the shots rang out.
