DAILYKENN.com -- Alton Adams is dead. The 19-year-old was fatally shot when a hail of bullets were fired at his mother's home.
Arrested is a 17-year-old Negro boy; Jyairus Folse.
The victim was in the home with five other family members when at least eight shots were fired. At least four of those shots hit the home. One shot penetrated the wall and stuck Adams.
The crime occurred in Lockport, Louisiana Feb. 10, 2019. Lockport's population of 2.624 is 95.73 percent white and 1.03 percent black. One of those twenty or so black residents will be relocated to prison if convicted.
The was no lynch mob. No crowd of angry whites stormed the black neighborhood and burned it to the ground. No mention was made of race in local media that we saw. There was no media firestorm condemning "racism" as was seen after Trayvon Martin was killed in self-defense in 2012 or when Michael Brown was killed in self-defense by a police officer in 2014.

At around 10:25 p.m. on Sunday (Feb. 10) deputies responded to the 100 block of East Fontinelle Street.
Deputies arrived and found Adams was inside his mother’s residence when the shooting occurred. Five other family members were also in the home.
According to the report, one of the rounds penetrated the residence and struck Adams. He was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Webre.
Family members said when they heard the gunshots, they dropped to the ground.
“When he got shot, he hollered at me, ‘Hold my hand. Don’t let me die,’” Raymond Lambas, the victim’s grandfather, said.
He said the shooting was like a nightmare. Adams and another family member were trying to see where the bullets were coming from. That’s when the bullet struck.
