Update 3 p.m. Oct. 24:
Detectives are looking for two additional suspects in connection with the robbery and shooting on Rhoda Drive last week, East Baton Rouge Parish spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks said Tuesday.
Eric Johnson, 17, of Bonnie Drive, and Jerrin Jaishaun Spencer, 18, of Norwich Drive, are both wanted on principal to attempted second-degree murder, armed robbery and illegal use of a weapon, according to a news release from the sheriff's office.
Anyone with information about their whereabouts is asked to call 225-389-5000 or Crime Stoppers.
Two men were arrested Monday in the armed robbery last Wednesday on Rhoda Drive, according to a release from the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office.
Detectives responded to 4343 Rhoda Drive — a neighborhood off Airline Highway — just before 11:30 p.m. Wednesday after someone reported finding an unresponsive man lying on the sidewalk with an apparent gunshot wound, EBRSO spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks said in the release. The man's pockets appeared to have been pulled inside out, suggesting a robbery had occurred, according to an arrest report.
Video surveillance revealed a dark sedan leaving the scene shortly after the incident, though no footage exists of the shooting itself, deputies said.
The victim was transported to a hospital and remains in critical condition, Hicks said. The victim's family told detectives he had several hundred dollars, a cell phone and a wallet, though he had none of those possessions on him when he was found injured.
Using DNA evidence from the victim's clothing, detectives identified Kyriel Spencer, 17, as a suspect and took him into custody on Monday, Hicks said. Spencer admitted his involvement in the shooting and armed robbery while detectives questioned him, she said.
Spencer, of 16830 Bonham Ave., Baton Rouge, was arrested on counts of attempted second-degree murder, armed robbery and illegal use of a weapon.
Detectives also identified Darius Clark, 18, as a suspect. Clark is currently incarcerated at the Livingston Parish Jail on unrelated charges, but he admitted to detectives that he shot the victim during an armed robbery, Hicks said.
Clark, of 16732 Patton Ave., Baton Rouge, remains incarcerated but deputies have obtained a warrant for his arrest on counts of attempted first-degree murder, armed robbery and illegal use of a weapon. He will be transported to East Baton Rouge Parish Prison and booked on those counts at a later date, Hicks said.
