Jefferson Parish Sheriff Joe Lopinto says deputies tonight shot and killed a suspected murderer. 

According to the sheriff, deputies were attempting to arrest the man at an apartment in the 2200-block of Cleary Ave. when the suspect pulled a gun. 

“Our officers have to defend themselves and they have a hard job to do," Lopinto said.

Deputies were attempting to arrest the suspect for the fatal shooting of 19-year-old Kenyon Clark. 

Clark was killed last month at Lemon Playground in Jefferson Parish. 

That shooting also wounded Clark’s older brother, Grambling State University wide receiver Darrell “D.J.” Clark.
