Baton Rouge boy, 7, killed in drive-by shooting

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office says a 7-year-old boy has been killed and an older girl injured in a drive-by shooting as they sat in the back seat of their parents' car.

Sheriff's office spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks says Terrez Coleman was among three children in the back seat. She says his parents told investigators they passed a car heading the other way, heard a "pop" and realized two of the children had been shot about 11:10 p.m. Saturday.

Hicks says the girl was grazed.

She says the investigation is continuing, and investigators are asking anyone with information about the shooting to call. Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for tips leading to arrest.
