A Baton Rouge man accused of shooting at another man with whom he’d argued was arrested Thursday, several months after the incident occurred, the Baton Rouge Police Department reported.
The shooting happened around 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 6 after Harry Robinson, 37, walked outside his Enterprise Street home and saw a man “he recently had an argument with regarding family business” talking to a woman in front of a house down the street, according to Robinson’s arrest warrant. As the man left, he drove past Robinson, then heard a loud noise and “felt an impact on the vehicle,” the warrant says.
“The victim quickly accelerated and left the scene” after turning around to see Robinson pointing a shotgun at him, a detective wrote in the warrant. When the man got home, he saw a large hole in the passenger side of his vehicle, the warrant says.
The victim later told police Robinson was trying to murder him because of the argument they had days earlier, the warrant says. The victim and a witness both identified Robinson from a photo lineup as the shooter.
The detective noted that Robinson is prohibited from having a firearm because he’d been convicted of possession with the intent to distribute Schedule II narcotics and felony marijuana possession in 2008.
Robinson, 5233 Enterprise St., Baton Rouge, was booked into Parish Prison on counts of attempted second-degree murder, aggravated criminal damage to property and felon in possession of a firearm. Online jail records show he was assigned $300,000 bail.
