13-Year-Old Accused of Shooting Deputy

Louisiana authorities say that a 13-year-old boy is in custody after shooting a deputy who was investigating a burglary.

St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Deputy Kenneth Doby responded to a call about a suspected burglary at a business at approximately 3 a.m.

Doby reportedly was shot once in the back during a struggle with a 13-year-old in the area. Despite the bullet wound, the deputy managed to arrest the boy before paramedics arrived on the scene.

The sheriff’s office said that Doby, a four-year veteran of the department, was undergoing treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.

“Right now, it looks like he’s going to have a full recovery,” Sheriff Randy Smith said. “We’re very lucky. … We’re just thankful he’s going to be OK because it could’ve been a lot worse.”

The 13-year-old has been arrested on charges of attempted first-degree murder, resisting a police officer with force or violence, resisting an officer, battery of a police officer causing injury, simple burglary, illegal possession of a handgun by a juvenile, and unlawful possession of stolen goods.

The suspect’s name has not been released because he’s a juvenile.

“From what they tell me, during the interview he didn’t show any remorse,” Smith said.

    It’s 3 a.m. Do you care where your 13 year old kids it?

  4. Gwyllim says:

    No race listed, so…Black. Like my grandpaw used to say: ‘We should’a hired the Indians to pick the cotton.’

  5. Anya says:

    Correct typo my cat posted. It’s 3 a.m. Do you care where your 13 year old punk is?

  6. Imelda says:

    Enough with protecting the undeserving….you shoot anyone while committing an unlawful act, and your name gets released and published. It’s time to protect the innocent not the criminal.

    1. Rattlerjake says:

      You’re so right. It’s also bullschitt that they are called suspects when they are caught in the act.

  7. Ed says:

    He should be tried as an adult. No BS’ing around, He did the crime, he can do the time!

    Let’s see. A 13yr old black male with a stolen handgun is out at 03:00 robbing stores and then boldly shoots a cop when being arrested. How nice. The parent(s) are probably stoned and/or drunk at the time and could care less about what the boy is out doing at that time of night. How sad our society has become. The kid has ruined his life because of a neglectful family. Of course the courts will say he was under privileged and give him a slap on the wrist and tell him not to do that again. Then turn him loose.

      Yup, your are probably correct.

      1. szq says:

        And also, after being turned loose and then maybe also going on a killing spree just like what happened recently, then the lefties will all be up in arms again about “gun control”… How about CRIMINAL CONTROL of all these many menacing convicts that are being turned loose by the same whiners??? As well as all the demands to “defund the police”???? Can they not see that their “logic” makes no sense? Well of course they cannot! Since when have they…”seen” or “made any sense”???

    It does not matter what color he is or what language he may speak he is old enough to know right from wrong and now that he has done this it’s a red flag that should not be ignored or dismissed because of his age. Our judicial system has a place for him but I have seen those places and they are not punishment. All cozy with a/c, tv and games 3 meals a day and snacks any time of day, come and go as you please from inside to outside to play ball or visit outside in the sun with your friends. It’s not punishment – it’s a vacation – sadly it is probably better than his home life so what incentive is there to straighten up. Why not send them to camp for a few years and train them in a trade of some kind – use them on job sites, teach them building, plumbing, landscaping or even farming so they can learn to be a productive individual when they get out. That way maybe they will develop a real sense of pride in themselves instead of being turned loose only to do a crime and go back for the easy free life.

    good, may he rot in prison, bet he will get juvenile detention (if that) and will be out by the time this thug is 18
