A Plaquemine teenager was found shot to death Saturday night.
Investigators say they are still searching for his killer.
17-year-old Jamarius Riley was found face down in a vacant lot on Allen Street, shot at least three times.
Detectives say he left work around 10 pm and was gunned down a block from his home.
A witness says she heard shots fired and saw a dark colored single cab truck speed away. While police search for the suspect behind Riley’s shooting, Plaquemine residents are trying to cope with the city’s first murder in over three years.
Police are asking anyone with information on the truck or the shooting to call police headquarters at (225) 687-9273.
