State Police say Bares identified himself to the suspects and contacted the Vermilion Parish Sheriff's Office. He requested that deputies be dispatched to the location to investigate the situation.
When deputies arrived, they found Bares had been shot multiple times. Taylor and Richard allegedly stole Bares' vehicle and fled after the shooting.
The vehicle was located a short time later in south Abbeville. Several agencies from multiple parishes responded to the area and established a perimeter. Taylor was taken into custody without incident in Abbeville. Richard was located in Kaplan and was taken into custody without incident.
Detectives later learned that both men burglarized a home on South Hospital Drive shortly before shooting Deputy Bares.
Bares was transported to Abbeville General Hospital where he later died as a result of his injuries.
He is survived by his wife and two children.
