A New Sarpy teen shot himself in the head right after telling a close friend of the family a final message - “Tell family I love them.”

Capt. Patrick Yoes, St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s spokesman confirms that deputies were called to investigate the fatal shooting death of 13-year-old Kerrick Robertson of 805 Terrace St.

“We were told from someone in the family that the child said ‘Tell my family I love them,’ right before he shot himself,” Yoes says.

Yoes says autopsy reports rule the incident as a suicide.

Robertson was a sixth grader at Ethel Schoeffner Elementary.
