MONROE, LA — A three-year-old boy has passed away today after he was allegedly shot by a five-year-old on August 1.
Monroe Police say they were told the three-year-old boy was shot by a 5-year-old playing with a handgun, but investigators are not so sure the story adds up.
Authorities say at least six young children and five adults were present when they arrived.
The three-year-old was taken off life support earlier today.
Police say charges of Obstruction of Justice are pending in the case.
