Louisiana State Police are investigating a fatal shooting involving a 14-year-old boy and a Terrebonne Parish deputy Tuesday night in Houma.
The incident happened in Kirkglen Loop after deputies were called to the scene just before 6 p.m.
Louisiana State Police Trooper Evan Harrell said the initial report said several armed suspects ran into a home.
Harrell said what happened exactly is under investigation, but state police can confirm that the 14-year-old was fatally shot. He said a weapon was was recovered “in close proximity” to the 14-year-old’s body.
There are three other suspects in custody — two juveniles and an 18-year-old, Harrell said. A fifth suspect escaped out the rear of the residence. Harrell said the home was abandoned at the time.
Relatives on the scene identified the 14-year-old as Cameron Tillman, whose picture you can see above. They say he was shot four or five times in the back, and that he was a student at Ellender High School.
"The individual that was fatally wounded, his family, everybody deserves a proper investigation, and that’s what we’re here to do," Harrell said. "And until we get everything nailed down, squared away, we’ll be out here as long as it takes."
The investigation is ongoing.
Also from the article linked above:
Andre Tillman, Cameron’s brother, was inside the abandoned house at the time of the shooting. He said somebody knocked on the door. “My little brother thought somebody was just clowning, because somebody is always clowning by the door. He opened (it) and the man just shot him. He didn’t have nothing in his hand.”
