Transcript for Louisiana Manhunt Ends After Alleged Gunman's Body Found
shooting spree in louisiana town. The man accused of targeting his family and former colleagues in a series of home invasions. He took the lives of a hospital administrator, his former mother-in-law and his own wife, in separate attacks before, then, taking his own life. Abc's matt gutman has the breaking details. Good morning to you, matt. Reporter: Good morning, josh. This morning, police in louisiana are still trying to piece together what happened last night with that wild shooting spree. The situation, so fluid at one point, the sheriff put three area hospitals on lockdown. All of that triggering that massive manhunt, which ended just a few hours ago. Police believe this man, 38-year-old ben freeman, went from home-to-home in the parish 30 minutes outside new orleans, on a mission to kill. This is unprecedented to have three, different victims, unrelated, targeted by a single killer. Reporter: His first stop at 6:40 yesterday evening, the home of his former in-laws. He killed his former mother-in-law. Freeman had been married to the couple's daughter, jean. Just 20 minutes later, police believe freeman targeted the home of milton bourgeois, the administrator of st. Ann hospital, where freeman once work. His wife was also shot and taken to an area hospital, where she's in stable condition. A third stop and a third death. This time, freeman's own wife, found dead in their home. Police say a shotgun was used in the shootings. A massive manhunt continued until just a couple of hours ago when ben freeman was found dead in his car on the side of a highway, of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. We heard that ben freeman had been married to his wife for six months. This morning, I spoke to louisiana police who said they're trying to figure out a motive here. What is clear, is a community and the three area hospitals are still reeling. Josh? Thank you for that. Our thoughts and prayers with all of the victims. As more ne becomes available, we'll have it for you on abc.
