Two teens wanted in the robbery and shooting last week on Rhoda Drive turned themselves in Tuesday evening, East Baton Rouge Parish spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks said.
Detectives had announced earlier Tuesday that they were looking for two additional suspects — both wanted on principal to attempted second-degree murder, armed robbery and illegal use of a weapon — in addition to the two arrested Monday in the incident.
Eric Johnson, 17, of Bonnie Drive, and Jerrin Jaishaun Spencer, 18, of Norwich Drive, surrendered on Tuesday, according to a news release from the sheriff's office.
On Monday, Kyriel Spencer, 17, and Darius Clark, 18, were arrested on counts of attempted murder, armed robbery and illegal use of a weapon. Clark was arrested on attempted first-degree murder, while Kyriel Spencer was arrested on attempted second-degree murder.
Detectives responded to 4343 Rhoda Drive — a neighborhood off Airline Highway — just before 11:30 p.m. on Oct. 18 after someone reported finding an unresponsive man lying on the sidewalk with an apparent gunshot wound, Hicks said in the release. The man's pockets appeared to have been pulled inside out, suggesting a robbery had occurred, according to an arrest report.
Video surveillance revealed a dark sedan leaving the scene shortly after the incident, though no footage exists of the shooting itself, deputies said. Johnson and Jerrin Spencer are accused of having been in the car during the incident, according to their arrest reports.
The victim was transported to a hospital and remains in critical condition, Hicks said. The victim's family told detectives he had several hundred dollars, a cell phone and a wallet, though he had none of those possessions on him when he was found injured.
Using DNA evidence from the victim's clothing, detectives identified Kyriel Spencer as a suspect and later identified Clark as a suspect. Clark is currently incarcerated at the Livingston Parish Jail on unrelated charges, but he admitted to detectives that he shot the victim during an armed robbery.
Clark and Kyriel Spencer told detectives that Johnson and Jerrin Spencer were also in the car. Kyriel Spencer and Jerrin Spencer are related, according to their arrest reports.
