An investigation continues into the deadly chaos that unfolded Wednesday night during a planned drug-buy involving Jefferson Parish narcotics officers in Terrytown.

Gunfire erupted when a suspect vehicle occupied by two men was put in reverse and struck a deputy approaching it, prompting other deputies to open fire, fatally wounding Chris Joseph and Daviri Robertson, both of New Orleans.

Another deputy was wounded by friendly fire and hospitalized in stable condition.
