No charges for Marigny homeowner Merritt Landry in shooting of Marshall Coulter

Merritt Landry, the homeowner who shot an unarmed teenager in the head after finding the intruder on his Marigny property, no longer faces criminal prosecution

Orleans Parish prosecutors on Thursday announced the decision to decline charges following news that Marshall Coulter, 15, who survived the shooting, had been arrested in connection with burglaries in the same neighborhood. The decision also comes after a grand jury failed to take action earlier this year, leaving the viability of the case in doubt.

"I am ethically obligated not to charge an individual against whom I do not possess evidence that proves beyond a reasonable doubt that he committed a crime," Orleans Parish District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro said in statement. "Such evidence does not exist in this case."

Police arrested Landry, 33, on a charge of attempted second-degree murder after he shot Coulter, then 14, after finding the teen in the fenced-in area of Landry's property in the 700 block of Mandeville Street.

You know, I’m not happy that the kid was shot. But, unlike the Sharptons of the world, I want to say that he should not have been where he didn’t belong. What was he doing there in the first place? Clearly he was up to no good, and brought what happened to him all on himself.

Maybe when he goes home, he will be a warning to other ghetto kids, of what might happen to them.

One shot fired, hit him in the head from 30 feet away and it was dark out(2am). Pretty good shot. Or a lucky one.

>>>he will be a warning to other ghetto kids...

I doubt it. This criminal behavior won't stop because any effective efforts to get to the roots of the problems bring out cries of discrimination. Whether spoiled rotten by wealthy parents or knowing only a ghetto life, these kids never learned how to lead a responsible life.

Sure, they are guilty of their crimes, but what's wrong with penalizing the bad parents who set them on these paths? Maybe they need to be taught a lesson.

“You know, I’m not happy that the kid was shot.”

He survived; it is safe for people to be happy that he was shot.
