The sheriff of Iberville Parish said two arrests have been made in a shooting that left a teen boy dead in Plaquemine on Sunday.

Dorsey has been charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery. Johnson is charged with obstruction of justice and accessory after the fact to armed robbery.

The Iberville Parish Sheriff's Office reported the shooting happened on Castro Street in Plaquemine around 7:15 p.m.
