Monte Carey

The second suspect in a November fatal shooting that sparked a string of retaliatory shootings was arrested on Friday afternoon.

Monte Carey, 27, was allegedly with suspected gunman Trashone Coats, 17, when he fatally shot 18-year-old Keondrae Ricks on Nov. 2 on Nebraska Street, according to a Baton Rouge Police report.

Police say that Carey confronted the victim with Coats and then went through Ricks's pockets after Coats shot him. The person who told police the details about the shooting said that Carey and Coats planned the murder, according to the report.

Carey, of 203 Chatsworth St., Baton Rouge, was booked on second-degree murder.

After Coats was arrested on second-degree murder on March 28, BRPD spokesman Sgt. L'Jean McKneely confirmed that gunfire and shootings that followed Ricks' death were "retaliatory."
