Chris Few and his son Jeremy Mardis, a first-grader at the Lafargue Elementary School in Effie, a community north of Marksville, Louisiana were being chased by city marshals after C. Few allegedly fled in an attempt to avoid being served with a warrant. C. Few reached a dead end and allegedly started to back into the marshals. They fired in an attempt to stop C. Few from evading the law. The city marshals managed to kill the child. He died from multiple gunshot wounds to his head and chest.
Why would a father put his child in the line of fire? Why would city marshals open fire on a moving vehicle containing a child?
He didn’t deserve to die!
