Teen Shot and Killed in Denham Springs

Northshore cops say one teen killed another in Livingston Parish.

Sheriff’s Spokeswoman Lori Steele says the call first came in as a report of a missing person.

“The missing person was David Nguyen (DOB 12/9/95) of Baton Rouge.  He was reported missing by his mother,” Steele explained in a news release.

She says as they looked for the 17-year-old boy, their investigation led them to an 18 year old.

“Detectives were led to Joel Orozco (DOB 9/1/95) of 30578 Cypress Ridge in Denham Springs.  Orozco confessed to shooting and killing Nguyen,” according to Steele.

She says he even showed them where it happened.

“The suspect led LPSO and EBRSO detectives to the scene of the murder off Clearwater Drive in Denham Springs.  Nguyen’s body was found at that location.”

No word on the motive for the murder.

Orozco is in jail on a charge of second degree murder.
