A 29-year-old Baton Rouge man accused of robbing three men at gunpoint outside their apartment on March 18 and firing shots at them, has been arrested.

East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s deputies booked Kelatrell Rayon Scott, 14130 E. Azalea Ave., into Parish Prison on three counts each of attempted first-degree murder and armed robbery, according to an affidavit warrant.
