A St. Landry Parish mother and father are looking for answers after their 21-year-old son was shot to death last night in Krotz Springs.
Police say one person is in custody but aren't saying much else at this time.
The victim's mother and father want to know what happened to their son, James "Ricky" Guillory, Jr.
The circumstances surrounding Monday night's shooting are still cloudy.
Krotz Springs police only confirming a man is dead.
"I'm never going to hear him say, "mama I love you". I can't tell him, "I love you son". I want to know why", says Guillory's mother Shawn Young.
His family says "Lil' Ricky" did have run-ins with the law in the past.
The rumor mill is pointing fingers at "Lil Ricky" but his father, James Guillory, Sr., but his dad says his reputation didn't warrant his death.
"Opinions are a dime a dozen. They oughta just wait until the truth comes out. Then they can make their opinions on it", says Guillory.
His family says the lack of information and communication with the Krotz Springs Police is most concerning, saying they deserve to know who shot "Lil' Ricky" and why.
"We're not getting any answers from them. They won't tell us anything. We went down this morning to the police station and they more or less gave us the run around", says Guillory."
The Krotz Springs Police Department has said this is an active investigation, and that information will be released in the coming days.
