15-year old Baton Rouge councilman's son shot in drug deal

Thomas Loupe, age 15
The 15-year old son of a Baton Rouge, Louisiana councilman was shot and wounded in an apparent drug deal gone wrong. 

Metro Councilman Chandler Loupe’s 15-year-old son is expected to live after being shot in the chest Friday evening during an alleged drug deal, a police spokesman said.
The shooting took place in the 1600 block of Mary Lou Drive sometime between 5:30 p.m. and 5:55 p.m., Baton Rouge police spokesman Cpl. L’Jean McKneely said Saturday.
The councilman’s son remained in a local hospital Saturday evening, McKneely said, in “stable but serious condition.”
The victim's name is Thomas Loupe.  The accused shooter is a 16-year old boy, Tyler Coleman.

Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
