JONESVILLE— State police say a Jonesville man was shot and killed while hunting in the Catahoula Wildlife Refuge.

Fifty-two-year-old Boatner K. Smith, also of Jonesville, was hunting about 5:50 Monday morning when he shot at something moving in the brush. Smith’s bullet struck 63-year-old Rod Gordo, who was killed instantly.

The Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations was asked to investigate the shooting by the Catahoula Parish Sheriff’s Department. Smith is an officer at the Catahoula Correctional Center, but is not a commissioned deputy.

Authorities have not arrested Smith, saying the investigation is ongoing.

An autopsy will be performed by the Catahoula Parish Coroner’s Office.
