Officers attempted a traffic stop but the vehicle fled and, in the ensuing pursuit, several units were damaged. The pursuit ended when the suspect vehicle accelerated toward a deputy and the deputy fired his service weapon and struck the passenger, Kendrick Neveaux (17) of New Orleans.
A firearm, equipped with a laser sight, was located inside the vehicle. The driver and a second passenger, both juveniles, were also taken into custody. Criminal charges will be forthcoming as the investigation is active and ongoing,
