MATTHEWS, La. (AP) — Lingering concerns over the recent shooting death of a Lafourche Parish teenager resulted in extra security at a high school basketball game in the parish this week.

The game between Central Lafourche and Thibodaux high schools had been set for Tuesday night at 6:15. It was rescheduled for 3 p.m.

Police monitored the game, according to The Daily Comet (http://bit.ly/wvFmjO ). And those attending the game had to pass through a metal detector.

It's all due to what police say was the gang-related shooting death of 15-year-old Jamonta Miles. The killing happened Jan. 2 as Miles and six others rode through Raceland in a sport utility vehicle.
