LAPLACE, La. (AP) — Authorities say a teenager has been killed during an apartment burglary in metro New Orleans.
The St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff's Office says in a Facebook post on Monday that the resident of the apartment shot 15-year-old Treshon Jenkins. The post says the resident called 911 after shooting Jenkins Saturday evening in LaPlace.
News outlets report deputies found Jenkins on the apartment's back porch before he died at the scene.
The sheriff's office says the resident shot Jenkins several times when he forcibly entered the apartment. It says Jenkins was wearing gloves and a mask was found near his body. The resident wasn't arrested.
A 14- and a 15-year-old who weren't struck by the gunfire are held on burglary charges.
It's unclear if the teenagers have lawyers who could comment.
