Navigating teen drunk driving is a task that most parents are aware of, but not prepared to face. Michael Reichardt, public information officer for Louisiana State Police Troop F, says that it's best to talk out the issue instead of letting tempers flare. One DWI can follow a teen for an entire lifetime and affect their social life and academic career.

Louisiana State Police say a 12-year-old shot and killed his seven-year-old brother in Lake Providence Monday. Trooper Michael Reichardt says the two youngsters were together when the shooting occurred. They are still investigating how the older juvenile got a hold of a weapon.

 

The seven-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene. Six children were at home at the time of the shooting while their mother was at work. Reichardt says it’s an active and on-going investigation.

State Police and the FBI seek the public’s help in the apprehension of suspects involved in two bank robberies in north Louisiana.  The Guaranty Bank in Epps was robbed November 10th. Seventeen days later the Barksdale Federal Credit Union in Cotton Valley was held up. Senior Trooper Michael Reichardt says the suspected man and woman hid their identities, but believe both robberies are connected.

 

Both suspects should be considered armed and dangerous.  Reichardt says if you see something suspicious, report it to police or the FBI.
