A 15-year-old boy was arrested Friday in connection with an armed robbery of a pizza delivery man on Oct. 1, police said.
The juvenile faces counts of armed robbery and attempted first-degree murder after a 20-year-old Domino’s Pizza employee was shot in the arm while on the job in the 4000 block of Shelley Street, said Baton Rouge Police Cpl. L’Jean McKneely.
The pizza courier was attacked when three teenagers tried to force their way inside the man’s vehicle around 11:15 p.m. on Oct. 1, McKneely said.
During a struggle, the delivery man was shot, and the teens ran away carrying stolen food, he said.
The boy was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Juvenile Detention Facility. Though the child is accused of a violent crime, proceedings related to his case won’t become public until after a judge makes a probable cause determination next month, said prosecutor Otha “Curtis” Nelson, Jr.
