Within hours of friends and family lighting candles at the site of a slain Baton Rouge man, police made an arrest in the 21-year-old’s murder.

Nearly 100 residents released dozens of balloons and placed candles on Madison Avenue just feet from where Calvin Chrisentary was shot, as family members recounted how a man who had always stayed out of trouble and was kind to those around him was shot to death near a telephone pole on Madison Avenue where the road intersects with North Foster Drive.

“He wasn’t the one who would be out and about,” said Chrisentary’s good friend Eric Wallace, who recounted bowling and skating rink trips with him over the years. “He was a humble person, and he would be happy.”
