Quarrel with grandson leads to Marrero man's death
Jefferson Parish Sheriff's officers were dispatched Friday evening to a male subject lying in the street in the 1000 block of Dimarco Drive in Marrero.
The officers found the victim suffering from a head injury in front of 1005 Dimarco Drive. A resident of that address, 52-year-old Kenny Armstrong, was pronounced dead on the scene.
Witnesses told Homicide Detective Tommy Gai that the victim and his 14-year-old grandson had a verbal argument inside the apartment. The argument continued outside into the street where it then turned physical. Witnesses say the victim began swinging at the 14 year-old. The teen struck the victim once, causing him to fall, striking his head on the ground.
This investigation continues and the JP DA's Office will be consulted. No charges have been filed against the 14-year-old at this time.
An autopsy will be performed by the JP Coroner's Office in order to determine the cause of death.
