NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — The father of a teenager who was murdered in December is now facing murder charges himself. The victim — the accused killer of his son.

Police say 46-year-old Bokio Johnson shot and killed 21-year-old Hollis Carter and a woman that sources have identified as his mother. Surveillance footage showed the two were waiting at a red light at the intersection of Chef Menteur Highway and Providence Place on Wednesday, March 23 around when they were shot.
