Parish May Condemn House Where Deputy Killed Teen
HOUMA, La. (AP) — The vacant house where a deputy sheriff shot and killed a teenager is going through Terrebonne Parish's condemnation process.
Cameron Tillman was killed by four bullets fired by a Terrebonne sheriff's deputy in the abandoned house on Sept. 23
A state police investigation into Tillman's death is ongoing.
Sheriff Jerry Larpenter said the deputy "feared for his life" when he shot the Ellender High School freshman.
