Mario Andre Scott, age 41 and of Slidell, is in custody for the shooting of brothers Miguel Doucette and Kerry Doucette just before 11:00 AM on Saturday (March 4, 2023) in Slidell. Scott is facing two counts of First-Degree Homicide, and one count of Felon in Possession of a Firearm. This is Slidell’s first two homicides of the year.
Officers responded to the 3100 block of Terrace Avenue, after receiving multiple 911 calls in reference to a shooting. Officers located the two victims suffering from gunshot wounds, one of whom was deceased at the scene. The other victim was transported to a local hospital where he later died as a result of his injuries.
Shortly after the shooting, Scott fled the Slidell area, but was later located in Jefferson Parish. With the assistance of the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office and the F.B.I. Gang Task Force, Scott was taken into custody, without incident.
The preliminary investigation indicates that the brothers confronted Scott about an earlier confrontation with their father. Scott open fire on the two brothers and shot them to death.
Slidell Police Chief Randy Fandal says, “This is a senseless tragedy that never should have happened in our community. Hopefully, the victims’ family can find some peace knowing this killer is off our streets and behind bars. I’m proud of the effort of all those involved with this case. Multiple law enforcement agencies worked together, very quickly, to get this suspect in-custody.”
