metairieshootingJefferson Parish deputies announced Wednesday night the death of Dondrell Cage, one of two 16-year-olds who were shot at a Metairie apartment on Tuesday.

According to deputies, Cage was the suspect in the attack.  They say he got into an argument with Bobby Bruer over drugs.  Deputies say Cage shot Bruer, who at last word remained in the hospital in critical condition.

Deputies say Bruer’s family members tried to wrestle the gun away from Cage and that’s when Cage was hit with a bullet that would prove to be fatal.
