KENNER, La. (AP) — Police say a mother drove six children, including two of her own, to a residence just outside New Orleans so they could fight another group of juveniles, resulting in one child being shot.
Police say 35-year-old Lakenya Hall, of Kenner, drove the children just after 5 p.m. Wednesday after a previous fight at a bus stop. At the second location, a 14-year-old was shot in the upper thigh. He was treated at an area hospital.
Hall was booked on six counts of contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and disturbing the peace. She remains in custody.
A 15-year-old was booked on aggravated battery and illegal possession of a handgun among other charges.
Hall's two sons, ages 15 and 11, were arrested on charges of disturbing the peace by fighting.
