GRAY, La. - Two 16-year-olds are charged with murdering and robbing a 25-year-old man Sunday in his mobile home in Gray, Terrebonne detectives said today.
Deputies said they found one of them at Evergreen Junior High School Tuesday morning, and he admitted to the murder.
Deputies found the other boy in the New Orleans juvenile jail.
The Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office will not release their names because they are minors.
They are both charged with the first-degree murder of Tyrone Walls Jr., 426 Champion St.
Walls' girlfriend called 911 at 10:24 p.m., soon after people heard gunshots in the area, Sheriff's Capt. Dawn Foret said. The girlfriend said two boys came into the mobile home and shot her live-in boyfriend. She was not harmed, nor was her brother who also lives there.
Police were holding the boy in New Orleans on charges unrelated to Walls' shooting, Terrebonne deputies said. The New Orleans Police Department arrested him Monday. The boy is from New Orleans but had recently moved to Gray with his family.
Both boys are each charged with one count of armed robbery, Terrebonne deputies said.
After Walls' autopsy, investigators concluded he died of multiple gunshot wounds in his chest and torso, deputies said.
Detectives are still investigating this shooting, so they have asked that anyone with information still call them at 876-2500.
