Jefferson Parish, LA

7/21/20 Times-Picayune:

The death of a 17-year-old boy who was fatally shot in Marrero last week was a justifiable homicide, according to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office. 

Terius Brue was gunned down in the 2000 block of Mather Drive on the morning of July 14. 

But Brue was shot after he allegedly fired first at Richard Harris, 20, of Marrero, said Capt. Jason Rivarde, a Sheriff's Office spokesman. ...

Homicide detectives determined that Brue entered the Mather drive home of a former girlfriend through a window while armed with a gun just before 11:30 a.m., according to authorities. Harris, who was inside the residence, helped the ex-girlfriend get Brue out of the house. 

Once outside, Brue is accused of shooting at Harris, who was not injured. 

"Harris returned fire," Rivarde said. ...

However, Harris was arrested on charges of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and obstruction of justice.
