LAROSE, La. (AP) - Lafourche Parish sheriff’s deputies say a 19-year-old man has arrested in the shooting death of a 15-year-old Larose boy.

Deputies identified the victim as Braxton Bourda.

The shooting happened about 2:45 p.m. Thursday.

Sheriff Craig Webre says 19-year-old Neely Gardner, of Galliano, surrendered to authorities early Friday morning and was booked with negligent homicide.

Webre says Bourda died after being shot in the head. Webre said witnesses told deputies four or five men moved Bourda’s body from the road to the shoulder before fleeing the scene.

It was unclear whether Gardner has an attorney.
