The teen shot and killed by a Jefferson Parish deputy sheriff in a Metairie warehouse late Tuesday (July 26) had attempted to fire his weapon but the gun may have malfunctioned, Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand said in a press conference.
"Devon Martes tried to kill one of my officers," Normand said, referring to the 17-year-old man who was killed. "Devon Martes is not the victim. The victim in this case is Deputy Dave Dalton."
The shooting took place just before midnight at 4013 N. Interstate 10 Service Road inside a warehouse used to sort and distribute newspapers to dealers for delivery. A video of the incident was later released by Advance Central Services-Southeast, a sister company of NOLA Media Group, which operates NOLA.com and publishes The Times-Picayune.
The video shows Martes raising what appears to be a gun and twice pointing it to the deputy before the officer shoots him.

1:04 minute video of shooting at the source.
Devon Martes, 17, of Metairie, was shot and killed by a Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office deputy after authorities say he pointed a 9mm pistol at the officer on Tuesday night (July 26).
I have no idea what kind of weapon this is. Any ideas?

It says Beretta on the slide. Looks like.
Black Thugs Matter!
I see that now. pietro beretta. I guess the rough shape and extended mag kind of threw me for a loop.
Beretta 92FS. I have one, myself.
But he was a good boy. Just turnin his life around. He was enrolled for college and needed money for cloths. He was an expiring rapper.
Watch the video, you will see this dirtbag try to ambush the police officer (who fortunately was well trained, and did a textbook, heroic, job of defending himself) YOU LOSE DEVON! Thanks for playing.
Just in time for his weeping mamma to get a speaking slot at the DNC Convention. He would have been off her foodstamps / EBT card soon anyhow. Good timing. Good future earning potential that wasn’t there previously.
I noticed the deputy put his training to good use.
Is it me, or does that barrel look dry?
Praise be if poor maintenance contributed to the malfunction.
I owned one but I had to give it up in a divorce. But mine never looked like that. The rough condition threw me.
Dindoo done did it. Dindoo done in.
The whole weapon looks like crap. It’s a good thing thugs do not know much about weapons maintenance.
17 years old. Just think how much this thug would have cost taxpayers of the long-run. He won’t be missed.
Maintenance is for white folks.
That was my first thought too - Beretta more than likely with the Italian lettering IMHO.
Let’s just hope he had not procreated yet.
