A man and woman were arrested Friday, each accused of attempted first degree murder in a shooting incident at a Dollar General store in Baton Rouge last month, police said.
Two victims, one a juvenile, said they got into an argument with Junice Griffin, 22, 5755 Larchwood Drive, and Oliver Robinson, 21, 6626 McClelland, Apt. 1, inside the store at 5455 Airline Highway on April 17, .
When the two victims left, Griffin pulled a gun from her purse and begin threatening the victims, police said in a booking report.
A third victim driving through the parking lot was forced to stop between the two groups that were arguing, due to traffic congestion in the lot, police said.
Griffin next gave the gun to Robinson, police said, who began shooting at all three people. The victim in the car was shot in the left arm and taken to Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. The other two victims were unharmed, police said.
Two vehicles parked in the lot were struck by gunfire, causing minor damage.
Detectives were able to use surveillance video from inside the store in their investigation and the first two victims were able to identify the two suspects in the shooting from a photographic lineup.
Griffin and Robinson were also each booked on counts of illegal use of a dangerous weapon and criminal damage to property, according to police.
