A Baton Rouge man was arrested Tuesday after he shot at one person then fired several shots into a woman who stepped in and tried to stop the confrontation, police said.
The shooting happened around 10:45 a.m. June 24 in the 150 block of Woodpecker Drive where Terence Westley, 27, allegedly pulled a gun and shot at a victim, who was not identified, according to a Baton Rouge Police Department arrest warrant. After that person ran away, a woman tried to stop Westley, who then shot her several times, the warrant says.
The woman fled with Westley chasing and continuing to shoot at her, the warrant says. The woman suffered gunshot wounds in her shoulder, arm and hip, the warrant says.
Both victims identified Westley as the shooter in a photo lineup, the warrant says, and the shooting was captured on surveillance video.
Westley was convicted of attempted second-degree murder in 2010 and, as a felon, he cannot legally have a firearm, the warrant says.
Westley, 12187 Leonidas Drive, Baton Rouge, was booked into Parish Prison on counts of attempted first-degree murder, illegal use of a weapon and carrying of firearm by a convicted felon. He remains in jail in lieu of $160,000 bail, according to online booking records.
