La. teen arrested after boy's fatal shooing

PRAIRIEVILLE, La. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a 14-year-old boy accused of accidentally shooting another teenage boy to death in a Prairieville mobile home.

The Advocate reports that Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office deputies also arrested three adults who were in the trailer when 13-year-old Christian Crain was fatally shot Friday night.

The sheriff's office says Crain was shot in the head while the teens played with a revolver that had been stolen from a vehicle several days earlier.

The 14-year-old was booked into the St. James Parish Youth Detention Center on charges that include negligent homicide, possession of a stolen firearm and possession of marijuana.

The adults - 18-year-old Devin Himel, 44-year-old Judy Himel and 25-year-old Danielle Gaudin - were booked on charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
