Baton Rouge police officers arrested a 44-year-old man Tuesday on allegations he rear-ended another man’s vehicle this weekend and then started an argument with that driver that ended in his shooting.
Dominco C. Mack, 44, 5344 Stearns St., Baton Rouge, was booked Tuesday evening on counts of attempted second-degree murder, aggravated criminal damage and resisting an officer, booking records show.
Police said a second man, who got out of Mack’s GMC Yukon, shot the victim as after he returned to his vehicle following the argument with Mack and was calling police.
Sgt. Don Coppola, police spokesman, said Wednesday that the triggerman remains at large.
Mack, who had been following the victim, sped up and rammed the rear of the victim’s vehicle in the 6900 block of Winchester Avenue shortly before 7:51 p.m. Saturday, police said.
The victim got out to check for damage. Mack, whom the victim said he knew previously, got out and started an argument about a personal dispute unrelated to the crash, the victim told officers.
Mack then gestured that he wanted to fight and said he was going to his Yukon to get his gun, police said.
That’s when the victim returned to his vehicle to call police and the second man in Mack’s Yukon shot him, police said.
Once shot, the victim fled to a nearby home.
Coppola said Wednesday the shooting remains under investigation.
