Detectives have obtained a warrant for the arrest of an 18-year-old man accused in the shooting of a 15-year-old girl sitting in her Breckenridge Avenue home Monday.
Darius "Doobie" Joseph, once caught, will be booked with three counts of attempted first-degree murder and illegal use of a dangerous weapon, according to a Baton Rouge Police Department news release.
Joseph's last known address is 5680 Breckenridge Ave.
He is black with a tattoo of a cross between his eyebrows.
Another man has already been booked in the shooting.
Charles Sibley, 26, of 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 spokesman Sgt. Don Kelly said Tuesday.
At 4:30 p.m. Monday, Sibley was driving in the 5600 block of Breckenridge Avenue when a man began shooting at his vehicle, Kelly said.
Sibley got out of his vehicle, pulled out his own weapon and exchanged gunfire with the other man.
During the shootout, a teenage girl sitting at her computer in a nearby home was struck by a stray bullet, Kelly said. The girl, who was not identified, was taken to a local hospital and treated for wounds that did not appear life threatening, police have said.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Joseph is urged to contact the Violent Crimes Division at (225) 389-4869 or Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-7867.
