Teen kills friend in accidental shooting
LAFAYETTE - Lafayette police have identified a teenager killed by his friend in a weekend shooting.
Cpl. Paul Mouton says 18-year-old Jo'nathan Delacroix was shot once in the face Saturday afternoon. Delacroix was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
Mouton says a friend of Delacroix, 18-year-old Anthony Beloney, was booked on counts of negligent homicide and marijuana possession.
He says Beloney told police he thought the pistol was unloaded when he pointed it in Delacroix's face and pulled the trigger.
Beloney is being held in the Lafayette Parish jail. His bond was set Monday at $25,000.
Online jail records did not list an attorney for Beloney.
