Two marshals are facing second-degree murder charges in Louisiana for allegedly killing a six year-old boy and seriously injuring his father during a shooting Tuesday. The state’s police chief called the incident “the most disturbing thing I’ve seen.”

Six year-old Jeremy Mardis, who was autistic, was killed and his father Chris Few was wounded when marshals opened fire on the vehicle they were traveling in Tuesday evening in the central Louisiana town of Marksville.

After body camera footage of the incident was viewed, two out of the four police officers were arrested. Louisiana state police chief Colonel Mike Edmonson revealed few details about the case during a press conference Friday when he announced that charges were being filed against the two officers, but was seething about what had happened.

“It is the most disturbing thing I’ve seen, and I will leave it at that,” he said, as cited by AP.
