“She was a loving and caring young woman” | Baton Rouge interstate shooting leaves mother dead

BATON ROUGE – Baton Rouge Police are investigating a deadly interstate shooting that left a 17-yr-old mother dead.

It happened around 10:45 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 25th on Interstate 110 near the Hollywood St. exit.

The victim is 17-yr-old Nykobia Keller, and she was headed back to her own home off the Hollywood St. exit after dropping off her boyfriend, Kepler’s family told Unfiltered with Kiran.

“She was a loving and caring young woman and loved being a mom,” Keller’s aunt Mary Roberson said. “She had a 4-yr-old. She was fun loving and the laugh of every party. I want justice for her because they didn’t have to do my baby like that.”

Livingston Parish is now a Second Amendment sanctuary. Here’s what it means.

LIVINGSTON – The Livingston Parish Council unanimously passed a resolution Thursday making the parish a Second Amendment sanctuary.

The resolution, proposed by parish councilman and parish president candidate Jeff Ard, means Livingston Parish will join other municipalities around the state and country in a fight to preserve the right to bear arms should state or federal laws on the matter change.

“This is another layer of protection for our Second Amendment rights for Livingston Parish citizens,” Ard said when introducing the resolution.

Many legal experts call Second Amendment sanctuary resolutions nothing more than political posturing with no real judicial impacts. It was a sentiment echoed by legal counsel for the Livingston Parish Council before Thursday’s vote.

“It certainly gives an expression for what you stand for, I’m not sure exactly what it accomplishes beyond that,” Christopher Moody said.
