Two 16-year old Louisiana boys shot over drugs

A drug deal between on 16-year old boy in Metairie, Louisiana, and two other 16-year old boys, went bad.  The first boy shot one of the others, injuring him, then the third boy shot him back with the same gun, killing the first.

From an article:
Dondrell Cage Jr., 16, of New Orleans, died Wednesday evening at the hospital. He had been shot Tuesday afternoon in a gun battle in the 2200 block of Giuffrias street, according to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office. 
Cage shot a 16-year-old Bobby Bruer in a dispute over drugs, and then a third 16-year-old shot Cage with the same gun. 
Deputies said the teens had argued over drugs Monday night, and the feud continued into Tuesday morning, one of the two boys shot the other teen, then a cousin of the boy who was wounded, grabbed the gun and fired at the teen who shot his cousin. 
Dondrell Cage had faced numerous charges, the sheriff's office said, including for attempted second degree murder, resisting arrest, battery on a police officer and illegal possession of a stolen firearm.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
