FREE MERRITT LANDRY
Homeowner should NOT be charged for defending his family and property!!!! Landry, 33, a building inspector for the Historic District Landmarks Commission, was arrested Friday morning after police said he shot Marshall Coulter, 14, while the teen was inside the fenced-in area outside Landry's home in the 700 block of Mandeville Street about 2 a.m. Detectives determined that Coulter, who was not armed, was not posing any "imminent threat" to Landry. Police booked Landry with attempted second-degree murder. Coulter had been identified as a suspect in some of the recent burglaries. On Friday, Coulter's family acknowledged the teen's history of burglary arrests but said he had never used a gun. New Orleans Police would not comment on Coulter's previous arrest record due to the fact that he is a minor.
