NEW ORLEANS (AP) – The head of Louisiana’s state police says two law enforcement officers have been arrested in the recent shooting death of a 6-year-old boy and his father’s wounding earlier this week.
It started as a police car chase in a town in central Louisiana. By the time the pursuit ended, on a dark dead-end street, a 6-year-old boy had been fatally shot in the front seat of a sport utility vehicle.
Iberville Parish deputies are asking for help locating a convicted killer who they say was accidentally released from prison. 32-year-old Benjuiel Johnson was released on September 23rd from Dixon Correctional Institute, but no one noticed the error until September 28th.
Deputies tell us they were told the state’s system showed Johnson was scheduled to be released on good behavior for other charges he was facing, but his manslaughter conviction did not appear when they ran his name.

It was Dec. 6, 2012, and Marcus Robicheaux, like the other inmates at the Iberia Parish Jail, was standing with his hands on his head and his nose pressed against the wall of the recreation yard as correctional officers ran a contraband sweep.
Suddenly, one deputy pulled Robicheaux from the wall and threw him to the ground. The deputy’s dog then attacked Robicheaux, biting his legs, arms and torso, and the deputy joined in, stomping and kicking the prone inmate. The whole three-minute incident was captured on video from the jail’s surveillance cameras.
