A 16-year-old boy was arrested late Thursday and accused of killing three people within a month, Baton Rouge police said.
The boy, whose name was not released because of his age, is accused of fatally shooting Kevin Bowie, 32, and Jessica Parker, 25, on July 29 while they were sitting in a vehicle in the 9100 block of Kingfisher Avenue, police spokesman Cpl. L’Jean McKneely said.
The boy is also accused of fatally shooting 19-year-old Ashley London on June 29 while she was sitting in a car in an apartment complex parking lot on Elm Grove Garden Drive, McKneely said.
Another woman was in the car at the time but was not injured, police have said.
The motive for the shootings might have been drug related, McKneely said.
The boy was booked into Juvenile Detention on three counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted first-degree murder.
