MARKSVILLE, LA -- Six-year-old Jeremy Mardis was laid to rest today.
Meanwhile the two Louisiana police officers who allegedly shot him to death, 23-year-old Norris Greenhouse Jr. and 32-year-old Derrick Stafford, have been charged with second degree murder and attempted second degree murder. They reportedly pursued the boy's father, Chris Few, came to a stop on a dead-end street, and opened fire.
The first grader was struck by five bullets into his head and chest while buckled into the front seat of the car. His dad is still in the hospital.
Exactly what happened is unclear. There wasn't a warrant, Few didn't have a weapon, and now some are saying that at least one cop may have known Few beforehand. In other words this may have been personal.
Either way it's devastating, all the way around.
