The horrific police shooting of an autistic boy in Louisiana might have stemmed from a feud over a woman — and police are now investigating if bad blood brought on the boy’s bloody demise.
One of the accused killer cops, Norris Greenhouse Jr., was a high school classmate of Chris Few, who was shot several times last week. Greenhouse and a fellow deputy city marshal, Derrick Stafford, also allegedly gunned down Few’s 6-year-old son, Jeremy Mardis.
Few’s fiance Megan Dixon told The Advocate Greenhouse had a recent run-in with Few. The marshal had been messaging Dixon on Facebook, and stopped by the house she shared with Few.
The meeting did not go well.
“I told Chris and Chris confronted him about it and told him, ‘Next time you come to my house I’m going to hurt you,” Dixon told the Advocate.
It’s unclear if any of the three kept in touch before the shooting or what Greenhouse said to Dixon in his messages. Dixon could not be reached for further comment.
Greenhouse and Stafford are accused of driving up to Few and his son at a dead end and firing 18 shots at them.
The marshals said they were trying to serve a warrant on Few, but city officials said there is no evidence of any warrant for the father, nor any evidence that he was armed or attacked the marshals. Body cam footage, which has not been released, shows Few had his hands upin the car, according to Few’s lawyer.
Greenhouse and Stafford are each charged with murder and attempted murder, and are being held on $1 million bail.
