Baton Rouge police on Saturday released new details about a fatal shooting Friday afternoon, including some information about the man they say shot Elijah Stevenson.
Cpl. Don Coppola Jr., a police spokesman, said Stevenson, 21, 3821 Maywood St., was walking in the 3800 block of Iroquois Street about 3:50 p.m. after leaving a dice game with another person. A man known only as K J approached them from behind on a bike.
When Stevenson turned around, K J pulled a pistol from his pants and fired several shots at him, Coppola said.
Stevenson later died from the gunshot wounds.
Police are still trying to learn the identity of K J. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact the East Baton Rouge Violent Crimes Unit at 389-4869 or Crime Stoppers at 344-7867.
