2 Louisiana Officers Facing Murder Charges

Two police officers in Louisiana are facing murder charges after a 6-year-old autistic boy was shot to death in the front seat of his father’s vehicle. The shooting happened on a dead-end street at the end of a Tuesday night chase in Marksville, a town of about 5,500 about 90 miles northwest of Baton Rouge.

It’s unclear why officers pursued or why shots were fired, since investigators say there were no outstanding warrants against the father, Chris Few, and that no firearm was found in his vehicle. A court hearing Monday morning may shed more light on the case.
