Remember the good ole days when your mom used to whoop your butt for getting into fights? This mom is changing the game now. She drove her two sons and four other boys to continue a fight that had happened earlier, and ended with one of the kids being shot. Way to go, Mom.
A 14-year-old boy suffered a gunshot wound to the leg Wednesday (April 8) after a woman drove him and five other juveniles to a residence in Kenner to continue a fight that had occurred earlier in the day, authorities said.
Police arrested the woman, Lakenya Hall, 35, of Kenner, because she instigated the fight by taking over the group of boys, which included her own 11- and 15-year-old sons, said Lt. Brian McGregor, spokesman for the Kenner Police Department.
The injured teen was taken to nearby Ochsner Medical Center in Kenner where he is expected to recover.
The shooting occurred just after 5 p.m. Wednesday in the 3500 block of West Louisiana State Drive in Kenner. Police learned that the teens had been involved in an earlier fight at a bus stop, McGregor said. Authorities aren’t sure what the teens were fighting about.
