2 teens in critical condition after Metairie shooting
The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating a double shooting in the 2200 block of Giuffrias Street which left two teens injured.
WWL-TV reports the two 16-year-olds are in critical condition in a local hospital.
JPSO Col. John Fortunato says the first youth was shot by the other teen following an argument last night over a "blunt," a marijuana-laced cigar.
The argument continued this morning when one teen shot the other this morning at about 10:00 a.m., Fortunato says.
After the shooting, Fotunato says a family member of the shooting victim wrestled with the alleged shooter, and the gun discharged, hitting the first teen.
