Baton Rouge Police say they have arrested two suspects in a January homicide.
Israel Jones, 20, and Dillan Moore, 18, were arrested Thursday by BRPD detectives and accused of shooting Aurtrell Bivens, 26, on Jan. 4 in the 1400 block of North 23rd St., near Cherry Street.
Jones was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count of first-degree murder, one count of attempted first-degree murder, one count of illegal use of a weapon and one count of felon in possession of a firearm, booking documents say. Moore will be booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count of first-degree murder, one count of attempted first-degree murder and one count of illegal use of a weapon.
Bivens and a juvenile victim were traveling north on North 23rd Street when the two suspects began shooting at their vehicle, police said.
The juvenile victim suffered non-life threatening injuries. Bivens was transported to a hospital and died Jan. 19.
A police statement spelled Jones' first name as Isreal, but booking documents list it as Israel. BRPD said the U.S. Marshals task force aided in Moore's arrest.
