Two men are arrested after a man is shot and killed in Abbeville. Police say the shooting happened in the 1400 block of South Louisiana Street Monday. Investigators say Jacoby Andrews was shot multiple times. He was taken to the hospital where he underwent surgery, but died from his injuries.

Witnesses say Jacoby Andrews allegedly forced his way into a home while armed with a gun. According to witnesses, Andrews shot while inside the home, and gunfire was returned by people inside the home. According to witnesses, a second gunman was shooting from outside the home. Witnesses say Andrews ran out of the home and was later found in a nearby yard.
