Two juveniles have been arrested in the shooting death of a Ponchatoula man last week, the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office announced Monday morning.
Gerrell Lee, 19, was killed inside a car near Rufus Bankston and Wardline roads.
The arrested youths are described as a 15-year-old boy who lives on Stafford Road and a 16-year-old boy who lives on Rufus Bankston Road.
Neither is being identified by name because of their ages.
Both were arrested at their homes Sunday and are being held at the Florida Parishes Youth Detention Center on one count each of second-degree murder, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release.
Deputies did not provide any more information on the shooting Monday morning, saying the investigation is still ongoing.
