A Baton Rouge man days from getting married was shot and killed on Enterprise Street Saturday afternoon in the first of two deadly shootings from the weekend.
Baton Rouge Police spokesman Sgt. L'Jean McKneely Jr. said Bobby M. Holliday, 38, of 3625 Mohican Street, was found around 12:40 p.m. with multiple gunshot wounds in the 5200 block of Enterprise Street.
McKneely said police had not identified a suspect or motive as of Saturday evening. Police are asking anyone with information to contact the Violent Crimes Unit at 389-4869 or Crime Stoppers at 344-7867.
Holliday’s fiancée, Timesha Dillon, said she and Holliday had been together for seven years and were supposed to be married in a few days.
Rashelle Green, Dillon’s friend, said the two "really loved each other. She’s got to be strong.”
Holliday’s mother, Annie Holliday, 61, said her son was well-loved. He was a “family man,” she said, the father of six children.
“I loved my son,” she said. “He loved his kids.”
Other family members said Holliday enjoyed attention, with a sense of humor that kept everyone in good spirits.
“He just loved making everybody laugh,” said Tammy Carter, his cousin.
Baton Rouge police swarmed Enterprise Street on Saturday afternoon, cordoning off the driveway of a blue-and-white house with red police tape.
Crime scene photographers walked back and forth through the open driveway gate, the subject of their investigation largely hidden by a white lattice fence.
The coroner’s van and a representative with the District Attorney’s office arrived around 2 p.m.
Additional barriers of yellow police tape hung suspended between the houses at intervals down the street, blocking a crowd of neighborhood residents trying to see past the coroner’s van.
One woman who lives in the neighborhood and asked not to be identified said she heard gunshots earlier in the day. She said she ran with a group of people toward the noise and they found a man on the ground in front of a house.
“I know him as a neighborhood guy,” the woman said.
Another woman was standing outside after the shots rang out, shaking and upset, she said. The neighbor approached her and held her hand while others called out the victim's name.
