    This is about 5 miles from me so it's hitting close to home.

    Slaughter is a small town in East Feliciana parish.
    Just to give you an idea, the population was 988 in 2011.

    Right on the East Baton Rouge parish line.

    The victim — a woman whom deputies have not identified — died after suffering at least one gunshot wound to the head, said Sgt. Kevin Garig of the East Feliciana Parish Sheriff’s Office.

    An autopsy is scheduled for Friday.

    The victim's name has not been released.

    The eight-year-old has been released to his parents.

    The investigation is ongoing.

    What a sad story. I wonder, was he playing with the weapon? Why was the weapon within his reach??? So many questions.

    She must have been his great grandmother.

    East Feliciana Parish Sheriff's Office officials say they believe an 8-year-old intentionally pulled the trigger and killed an elderly woman Thursday evening right after playing 'Grand Theft Auto IV'.

    According to family members of the victim, her name was Marie Smothers. Smothers was 90 years old

    Authorities say that Louisiana law prohibits them from charging the child with a crime because of his age.

    The law states: "Those who have not reached the age of 10 years are exempt from criminal responsibility. However, nothing in this article shall affect the jurisdiction of juvenile courts as established by the constitution and statutes of this state."

    Smothers, 90, was the child's primary caregiver.

    "The victim and the juvenile had a normal, loving, relationship and even shared the same bedroom," East Feliciana Parish Sheriff's deputies said Friday.
