She “instructed him to exact revenge”?? New Orleans police say


NEW ORLEANS – Police on Thursday were searching for a teenager and his mother, who they say gave the boy a handgun after he lost a fight and told him to take revenge.

The warrants accuse both Vanessa Johnson, 44, and Clarence Johnson, 17, of second-degree murder of another 17-year-old, whose name was not immediately released, New Orleans police Sgt. Joe Narcisse said.

He said both teens had walked away after the original fight Wednesday evening.
