Two Louisiana Marshals Charged With Murder After Allegedly Killing A Six-Year-Old Boy During A Police Shootout
This story is so sad.
As we reported earlier this week, law enforcement officers shot and killed a six-year-old boy — and severely wounded the boy's father — during an attempted traffic stop earlier this week in Marksville, Louisiana.
Now, in a surprisingly swift move by the Louisiana state police, marshals Derrick Stafford (above, left) and Norris Greenhouse, Jr. (above, right) have been arrested and charged with second-degree murder for Jeremy Mardis' death.
They have also been charged with attempted murder, for seriously wounding Chris Few, Mardis' father.
The arrests come after state police colonel Michael Edmonson revealed a heartbreaking statement about the body camera footage he watched in reviewing the case:
