HOUMA, La. (WVUE) - A man accused of killing a 19-year-old at a “splash” party in Houma has turned himself in.
The shooting happened on Saturday, June 26 around 8 p.m. in the 2600 block of Isaac Street.
Officers located a male, later identified as Emmitt Carr Jr., suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
During the investigation, investigators learned there was a “splash” party on Isaac Street where several people attended.
The crowd began to disperse and that’s when police say several shots were fired.
Emmitt Carr Jr. was taken to the hospital but had to be transported to an out-of-town facility for additional treatment.
Carr died as a result of his injuries on Sunday, officials say.
The suspected shooter, Terrion Robinson, 20, turned himself in on July 1. He is being charged with second-degree murder.
Houma Police detectives believe the motive stems from a continuous feud between groups of people from Thibodeaux and Houma.
