Jefferson Parish deputies say Doretha Richardson may have been caring for a 3-year-old girl when she was shot and killed in a Bridge City home.

Two others were also in the home when the bullets started flying Friday night, detectives say.

They found casings inside and outside the home on 5th Street.

The Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office says the casings line the street and make a trail to the front door.

Anyone with information on the killing is asked to call Crimestoppers at 822-1111.
