Thomas Robert Tarver, 43, Bayou Body Count No. 117
An apparent murder-suicide on the far west side early Friday morning is still being investigated by police.
Kelly Edward Allen, 50, and Thomas Robert Tarver, 43, had been friends "for years," HPD says.
In the pre-dawn hours Friday, Allen went to Tarver's home in the 14000 block of Britoak Lane and "forced his way in by kicking in the front door," police say. He then shot Tarver and turned the gun on himself.
