Two men shot and wounded each other at noon Friday on Sycamore Street during an argument about a water bill, Baton Rouge police said.
Malcolm Patrick, 50, shot Anthony Malveo, 39, once in the chest during the argument at the men’s 5304 Sycamore St. home, police spokesman Sgt. Don Stone said in a news release.
Malveo then wrestled the gun away from Patrick and shot Patrick twice in the leg, Stone said. Both men were taken to a hospital for treatment, he said.
Malveo is in serious condition, Stone said. Patrick was treated and released, Stone said.
Patrick will be booked into Parish Prison on one count each of attempted second-degree murder and illegal use of a weapon, Stone said.
