A family basketball game turned deadly Sunday after an argument led to gunfire in a quiet Baton Rouge subdivision.
Brothers Andre Guy, 35, and Timothy Guy, 46, were playing basketball with their cousin Johnny Sanford, 30, just before 7 p.m. when shots were fired on South Afton Parkway, Baton Rouge Police spokesman Sgt. Don Coppola Jr. said.
Sanford is accused of firing the shots that hit Timothy Guy in the lower limbs, but he is expected to survive. Andre Guy was struck by gunfire in the leg and was pronounced dead at Baton Rouge General Medical Center-Mid City after someone drove the brothers there.
Police have not yet said who fired the fatal shots at Andre Guy, who lived in Slaughter.
Sanford, 5588 Velora St., Baton Rouge, is wanted on counts of attempted second-degree murder in the injury of Timothy Guy. Coppola said Timothy Guy and other witnesses identified Sanford as the shooter.
Baton Rouge police spokesman Sgt. L’Jean McKneely Jr. said a man fled before police arrived. Neighbors said a fleeing vehicle struck the front of a pickup that was parked down the block from the scene.
Neighbors also said the residents of the home at the center of the crime scene had only recently moved in. Police focused on a home at South Afton Parkway and South Leighton Drive, searching through the grass of the large front yard with flashlights.
Anyone with information on Sanford’s whereabouts is asked to contact the BRPD Violent Crimes Unit at (225) 389-4869 or Crimestoppers at (225) 344-7867.
