HPD Homicide Division Officers S. Glaze and M. Dykens reported:

Officers were dispatched to a shooting in-progress call to 2834 Tidewater.  Upon arriving, the officers discovered Ms. Arceneaux deceased on the kitchen floor.  According to witnesses at that location, the suspect (Allen), the deceased female’s ex-boyfriend, fled the scene prior to the officers’ arrival.  While en route to the call, another officer observed the possible address of the suspect was listed as 3726 Cloverbrook.  The officer proceeded to that address.  As the officer was parking his patrol car in front of the suspect's home, two witnesses told the officer the suspect was sitting in a vehicle in the driveway of his residence.   The officer then heard a gunshot and located the suspect deceased in the vehicle due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
