Baton Rouge Police arrested a 25-year-old man and two teenagers late Tuesday night accused of shooting at a police officer at the scene of an attempted break-in Tuesday, Police Sgt. Don Stone said in a Wednesday news release.
Homicide detectives arrested Abraham Washington, 1141 West Grant St. and two juveniles, ages 14 and 15, and booked them all with attempted first-degree murder of a police officer and simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling, Stone said in the release.
Stone said the 15-year-old is the suspected shooter.
Information gathered during the investigation and evidence collected from the scene led to the arrest of the three suspects involved, Stone said.
Police believe that all three suspects worked together in committing the burglary at a home on Van Buren Street where the car was stolen, Stone said.
Police also believe that all three were together in the stolen car when the shooting occurred just before 5 a.m. on West McKinley Street.
The men fired at least two shots at a police car with a police officer sitting behind the wheel, Stone said Tuesday.
One of the bullets pierced the windshield of the officer's car and hit the dashboard in front of where he was sitting, Stone said. The officer, who was wearing a bullet-proof vest, was not injured.
