Deputy David Dalton fired six shots at Martes as authorities say the teen pointed a 9mm pistol at the officer inside The Times-Picayune warehouse. The Sheriff's Office received a 911 call reporting two people who were "rolling shiny objects down the street." The pair was seen jumping a fence near a car dealership's new vehicle storage lot. Deputies who began searching the area spotted a person later identified as Martes running towards the back of the newspaper warehouse. Dalton followed the teen into the warehouse and opened fire after spotting the teen's weapon, according to police.
