HOUMA, LA (WVUE) - A 16-year-old juvenile turned himself in to Houma police Monday afternoon in connection with a homicide.

Roderick Davis, Jr. was shot and killed in Scott Lane Park.

Police say Davis entered the park with three other males. While there, an altercation began between Davis and the other subjects.

Police say one of the suspects pulled a gun, pointed it at Davis and shot him several times.
