SLAUGHTER, La. (AP) - East Feliciana Parish sheriff's deputies said an 8-year-old boy shot and killed a 90-year-old woman at a mobile home park near Slaughter.
Sgt. Kevin Garig tells The Advocate the identities of both the shooter and the victim are being withheld to protect the identity of the juvenile.
Garig said the woman died after suffering at least one gunshot wound to the head shortly after 5 p.m. Thursday at the Country Breeze Mobile Home Park off La. Highway 67 east of Slaughter.
He says the boy was released to his parents.
