LSP officials meet with judge on parameters of gag order in shooting death of 6-year-old

Vigil held for 6-year-old killed in Marksville

Col. Mike Edmonson, superintendent of Louisiana State Police, and his investigators met with a judge in Marksville on Thursday about the gag order in place related to the case of a 6-year-old boy who was shot and killed.

According to Edmonson, the judge wants him to be careful about releasing information on the evidence in the case.

"Anything that is considered evidence at this point, we talked about the forensics, you know, when I gave the press conference the other day, the forensics of what we found at the scene, what we've done in this investigation, I've got to be extremely respectful of that gag order," Edmonson said. "He was extremely adamant about it and that is what we talked about."

He also said the investigation is ongoing related to the other two officers who were present the night of the shooting.

Derrick Stafford, 32, and Norris Greenhouse, Jr., 23, are Marksville police officers and Ward 2 city marshal deputies. They are accused of shooting and killing Jeremy Mardis and critically wounding his father, Chris Few, after a car chase. The officers were moonlighting for the Ward 2 City Marshal's Office at the time of the shooting.

Both face charges of second-degree murder for the death of Mardis and attempted second-degree murder in the shooting of Few. The Office of the Louisiana Attorney General will handle the prosecution of the two officers in the Marksville shooting.
