A shooting claims the life of 15-year-old JaCarlos Moran. Now Shreveport police are left piecing together this tragedy.
"There was a large group of teenagers gathered inside a residence in the 3100 block of Woolford," explained Sgt. Bill Goodin. "At some point, one of those teenagers produced a hand gun in brandishing the weapon."
Moments later shots rang out. "The suspect fled with the firearm and apparently according to initial witness statements, came back to the scene to make apologies," he added.
According to Shreveport police a bullet went through the victim's chest. He was then taken to LSU hospital where he was pronounced dead. It's news that isn't sitting well with family members.
"I hug her and told her God is good. He's a good God, I know he's been good to me," said Arthur Mae Brown. "I'm sorry that it happened, but it's a lesson for the other kids."
Meanwhile the gunman is behind bars and the investigation continues.
"Detectives are working at this time to determine if it was accidental or if it was intentional," explained Goodin. "The exact circumstances surounding why the gun was fired."
