Gonzales Patrol Officers were dispatched to Hampton Inn located on W Outfitter Dr. in reference to a domestic disturbance in progress. They say it happened around 5:00 p.m. Saturday night.

After Officers arrival they met with an upset female in the lobby identified as Ebony Bailey and learned from her that a fight had broke out at her 7-year-old daughter's birthday party between her two children's fathers. Bailey then identified Alden Warner as one that was fighting with her current boyfriend by the name of Louis Talbert, 49 , from Spring, Tx .

Officers detained Alden Warner, 33 of Baton Rouge, in the parking lot of the Hampton Inn and proceeded to Room #306, where the party was taking place and found Talbert lying on the floor suffering from a single gunshot wound to the chest. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigating Detectives say the shooting stemmed from a comment made by Warner to Bailey in the presence of Talbert that caused Talbert to strike Warner several times. Warner then pulled a pistol and shot Talbert one time, while the room was occupied by young children attending the birthday party. He then left the room until he was detained by officers.

None of the children, ranging in ages between 2 to 8, attending the party were seriously harmed and have been released back to their appropriate guardians.

Alden Warner has been booked and processed on one count of Carrying a Concealed Weapon and one count of Manslaughter.

Murder is never an option. Someone punches you so you shoot them. The accused was a coward...the young people of today are cowards. He was talking disrespectifully to the Mother of his kid and got chin checked. You dont bring a gun o a childs party. He didnt even have a permit for it, thats why he was arrested. The Mom is rather distasteful herself. She brreaks into a dead mans car whom she says was her boyfriend....YEAH RIGHT. Shady female there is a lot more to this story. I pray that ALL pay.

Most of this story is not true. You can't believe everything you hear in the media. There are always two sides to a story. Unfortunately, Mr. Talbert will not be able to tell his, due to the unneccessary violence that happened that day at the Hampton Inn. The "whole" truth will surely come out. This was not an accident nor in the heat of the moment type of incident. This was pure MURDER. Premeditated MURDER. Who goes to a child's birthday party with a .38 caliber weapon?

Just because someone carries a weapon doesn't mean they planned on using it. I know the suspect very well. He's well mannered and doesn't cause confusion. He is the father of the child who's bday it was he had every right to be there he could have very well had issues with the guy previously and was protecting himself just in case something happened. He didn't strike first the deceased person did
