On Tuesday, January 5, 2016 the Natchitoches Police Department responded to the Natchitoches Regional Medical Center in reference to a 16 year old, male, juvenile who had sustained injuries during a fight inside of the parking-lot of the Natchitoches Central High School. Initial reports stated that the juvenile was struck multiple times about the head which led other students to intervene and break up the fight. The juvenile then left the school’s campus and traveled to his grandparent’s residence where he became extremely ill. As a result he was then transported to the Natchitoches Regional Medical Center where medical officials determined that his injuries had resulted in a brain bleed. As a result of those injuries the juvenile was then transported by helicopter to the Rapides Regional Medical Center where his current condition is unknown.
The offense was later turned over the Natchitoches Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division (CID) in which detectives were able to get additional facts which led to the discovery of the perpetrator; Jerred Wayne Niette, 18 years of age, of 529 Hwy. 3191, Natchitoches, LA. Niette was booked on one count of LA R.S. 34.1 Second Degree Battery and was later transported out to the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center where he awaits bond.
