A man accused last month of shooting a 15-year-old girl who was sitting in her home on Breckenridge Avenue has been arrested, according to an arrest warrant.
Darius “Doobie” Joseph, 18, 5680 Breckenridge Ave., was booked Wednesday by Baton Rouge Police on three counts of attempted first-degree murder and one count of illegal carrying of a weapon, parish jail records show.
Joseph is the second person accused in the January shooting.
Charles Sibley, 26, 8121 Greenwell Springs Road, was arrested and booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count each of aggravated battery, illegal use of a dangerous weapon and felon in possession of a firearm.
Police have said that Sibley was driving in the 5600 block of Breckenridge Avenue when a man, later identified as Joseph, began shooting at his vehicle. Sibley got out of his vehicle, pulled out his own weapon and exchanged gunfire with Joseph. During the shootout, a teenage girl sitting at her computer in a nearby home was struck by a stray bullet, police said.
The girl, who was not identified, was taken to a local hospital and treated for wounds that did not appear life threatening, police said.
