Shooting a Louisiana memorial service injures 13

Thirteen people were shot Saturday night as a large group gathered in a Louisiana city, the U.S., for an impromptu memorial service for a man whose body was found earlier this month, authorities said.

No one was killed, but one person was in critical condition after the 9:15 p.m. shooting in Bogalusa, police said.

The crowd was gathered in a vacant lot to remember Dominique James, who was missing for several days before being found dead May 8 inside his vehicle in woods by officers in a helicopter, investigators said.

James' family had asked Bogalusa officials if they could have a regular memorial service for James, but were turned down because of stay-at-home orders with COVID-19, Tervalon said.

James was last heard from heading to an unknown location to pick up an all-terrain vehicle on May 2, police said. His death is considered a homicide, but Tervalon said he didn't want to release any additional details. No arrests have been made in that case, The Associated Press reported.
