Merritt Landry has been charged with attempted Second Degree Murder. Marshall Coulter is still in the hospital, he can move his right side, but Doctors say he will be brain damaged.
Landry paid $100,000 bond and is free today. He has a baby on the way and a toddler.
David Coulter is Marshall Coulter's older brother. He told reporters that he raised Marshall because their father died in 2010. If David's facebook video is any indication of what Marshall was raised around, Landry was very lucky Marshall didn't own a gun, yet.
On New Years eve this year, David, and what appear to be his friends or relatives, are shooting their guns instead of firecrackers.
Also interesting are the gang signs he is throwing, and the universal sign that he is teaching the baby girl in his picture.
A disturbing entry was one where David said he was going to kill himself...the post received five likes and one comment, which I am clueless to understand. Sad though.
Man it's time 4 me to do wat I have to do I can't be happy cause of all da - shit around me I'm ta dat point wat aver happens happens I'm killing my self. 4 da last 3 n a 1/2 week my head been pound I'm lose in a lot of wight I can't go back n play ball cause dis n dat on my mind wat ever happens from here da man above no wats best 4 me.
There's this facebook entry where he doesn't mention Marshall. I'm wondering if he really did raise him, as he has said in a couple of interviews. There are no pictures of Marshall on his facebook page, but I have verified that this is his brother.
Fuck family only one I love is Devin da rest fuck yall with a sick dick all yall birch
This comment on Ebony's article about the case is awesome:

yrontrywon. Dang! By being too spooked at whites being frequently robbed at gunpoint in New Orleans Landry missed a golden opportunity to counsel this young man and possibly even mentor him, despite the fact that they encountered one another in the middle of the night inside of Landry's gated and locked driveway.
