A Baton Rouge man, who allegedly opened fire Saturday on his ex-girlfriend and her current boyfriend as they sat in a car at an intersection in Baker, is in Parish Prison on counts of attempted murder.
Dalvin Broadway, 20, of 11214 Cypress Glen Drive, was at a retail shop on Plank Road just before 10 p.m. Saturday with his girlfriend when he ran into his ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend, a Baker Police report says.
Broadway, who had “ongoing problems and altercations” with the female victim, got into an argument with the couple, the report says.
While in the store, Broadway challenged the woman’s boyfriend to a fight — a challenge the man accepted, the report says.
The two couples piled into separate cars to drive to another location for the fight, the report says.
But as they pulled up to the intersection of Plaza Drive and Jefferson Street in Baker, Broadway armed with a semiautomatic handgun, opened fire on the couple, striking the victims’ car as they sped away, according to the report.
No one was injured, the report says.
The victims identified Broadway for Baker detectives from a driver’s license photo, the report says, and also pointed out photos of Broadway on a social media page, in which he was brandishing a semiautomatic pistol.
Broadway’s girlfriend met with detectives hours after the incident and identified him as the shooter, saying he’d talked about his frustrations with the victims during the drive, before opening fire, the report says.
Broadway told detectives he’d gotten into a verbal argument with the victims but denied firing a weapon, the report says.
Police booked Broadway into Parish Prison on two counts of attempted second-degree murder, one count of illegal use of a weapon and one count of aggravated criminal damage to property.
