A 17-year-old accused of shooting and injuring two innocent bystanders Saturday night near the Mall of Louisiana was arrested Sunday night, according to an arrest warrant.
Meco Damon Green, 12400 Jefferson Highway, was booked late Sunday night on four counts of attempted first-degree murder by East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies, parish jail records show.

The bullets hit two other people who were bystanders instead, according to the warrant.
A third bystander was standing with the victims but was not hit, according to the warrant.
Green was picked out of a photo lineup.
According to the warrant, the two victims were treated for multiple gunshot wounds and taken to surgery at a local hospital.
