SHREVEPORT (AP) - Authorities in Shreveport have identified the toddler who died in a shooting in Shreveport's South Lakeshore neighborhood.
The Caddo Parish Coroner's Office says 2-year-old Ranaldo Bennett suffered a gunshot around 8 a.m. Friday. He died about two hours later at Ochsner LSU Health hospital.
News outlets report Shreveport detectives arrested 19-year-old Jaylen Jones later Friday on charges of negligent homicide and illegal possession of a firearm by a felon in what police are describing as an accidental shooting. It's unknown if he has an attorney.
