Abbeville Police looking for witnesses to teen’s murder

It has been four days since someone shot and killed 16-year-old Chazton Guidry, allegedly while playing dice, and the Abbeville Police Department still can not find a witness to the shooting.
His mother, Denise Levine, told the KATC TV station that the incident occurred as a result of an argument during a dice game and is asking anyone who knows anything about the incident to come forward.
Just before 11 p.m. on Friday, May 11, the Abbeville Police Department responded to a complaint of shots fired in the area of Bailey Street and Clover Street.
