Black Louisiana Deputy City Marshal Claims Self-Defense In Shooting That Killed 6-Year-Old White Boy

A deputy city marshal charged with murder after a police body camera recorded him shooting a 6-year-old boy is asking a Louisiana judge to throw out his indictment, saying he acted in self-defense by opening fire on a car driven by the boy’s father.

A court filing by Derrick Stafford’s attorneys says the video recording lacks audio for the first 27 seconds, making it impossible to determine if Stafford started shooting before or after Jeremy Mardis’ father raised his hands inside the car.

Stafford’s lawyers claim the father, Christopher Few, ignored officers’ commands to stop and rammed into a vehicle that another deputy marshal, Norris Greenhouse Jr., was exiting.

Stafford and Greenhouse await separate trials on second-degree murder charges.

The cops involved were both arrested:


Two Louisiana police officers have been charged with second-degree murder in the death of 6-year-old Jeremy Mardis, an autistic boy who was fatally shot by the officers while they were chasing his father’s SUV Tuesday night, police say.

Marksville Police Lt. Derrick Stafford and reserve officer Norris Greenhouse Jr. were also charged with attempted murder. They were taken into custody Friday night, Louisiana State Police Colonel Michael Edmonson said at a press conference.

...Stafford, 32, and Greenhouse, 23, were moonlighting as marshals for Avoyelles Parish Ward 2 when they pursued Mardis’ father, Chris Few, and opened fire on his vehicle. Two other officers, Lt. Jason Brouillette and Sgt. Kenneth Parnell, were also involved in the shooting, but have not yet been charged.

Few, 25, who was not armed, was also wounded in the shooting and remains hospitalized. His son was shot multiple times and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Greenhouse, also a full-time Alexandria city marshal, is the son of a civil attorney in the local district attorney’s office, which has recused itself from the case as a result, the Town Talk of Alexandria reports.

You would think a 6 year old would have more sense than to get in the way of a bullet.
