6-Year-Old Victim Of Police Shooting Buried In Mississippi TodayPlay
Funeral services are being held in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, today for Jeremy Mardis, the 6-year-old boy shot last week by Louisiana marshals who opened fire on his father's car. State police in Louisiana have arrested Marshals Derrick Stafford and Norris Greenhouse for the killing, and both face second-degree murder and second-degree attempted murder charges.
Jeremy's father, Chris Few, remains hospitalized in Louisiana in stable but serious condition. Initial reports said the officers were serving a warrant on Few at the time of the shootings, but further scrutiny showed no evidence that a warrant had ever been issued. Mike Edmonson, head of Louisiana's state police has called the video footage of the shooting - which has not been released - "the most disturbing thing I've ever seen."
