BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

The mother of a 5-year-old boy killed by a stray bullet in Bossier City is speaking out about the last time she saw her son alive.

It happened around 1:30 a.m. Sunday, July 30.

Bossier City Police say they received reports of multiple gunshots in the area of Southern Living Mobile Home Park on East Texas Street. Officers arrived at the mobile home to find that 5-year-old Reese Williams Jr. and his father Reese Williams Sr. had been shot.

Chisley says she performed CPR on Williams Sr. until authorities arrived. It wasn't until then that she realized her kids were in the backseat of the car outside. 

"When I pulled the car door open, my baby just fell over like that and somebody snatched me from behind and I was in the back of the police car," Chisley said.

Detectives say a stray bullet hit the 5-year-old. Chisley says it was not until three days later that she learned Williams Jr. had passed away. 

"My baby was very active, he was loved by everybody," Chisley said. She says he loved basketball and swimming.

A private funeral will be held Saturday.

20-year-old Keuntrel Rayshun Knight was arrested at the scene on one count each of second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder.

Williams Sr. remains in the hospital.
