Funeral Monday for 6-year-old killed in Louisiana shooting
HATTIESBURG - Family and friends are set to say goodbye to a 6-year-old autistic child who was killed during a police pursuit in Louisiana that left his father seriously wounded.
Funeral services for Jeremy Mardis are scheduled Monday afternoon at Moore Funeral Chapel at Moore Funeral Services in Hattiesburg, followed by burial in Beaumont Cemetery.
Authorities say Mardis died last Tuesday in Marksville, Louisiana, after city marshals fired into a vehicle driven by his father, Chris Few. State police said they have found no evidence that Few had a gun. Two law enforcement officers are in custody and face charges of second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder.
The family had recently moved to Marksville from Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
