Police have identified a teenager killed during an alleged armed robbery Thursday night in Baton Rouge.
The shooting was reported just after 6 p.m. on La Annie Drive, a residential street just north of Florida Boulevard and east of North Sherwood Forest Drive.
Sgt. L'jean McKneely, spokesperson for the Baton Rouge Police Department, says 19-year-old Alonge McClain, of Prairieville, was shot multiple times and died at the scene.
One person died and two more were injured in shootings Thursday evening, marking Baton Rouge's third homicide this week amid a continued spike…
"There was a second individual who fled the scene with gunshot injuries," McKneely said in a press release. "This individual was located in the 700 block of Harvey Drive and was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries."
An investigation remains ongoing.
It was the second shooting reported Thursday evening in the capital region. Another shooting occurred around 5 p.m. on Harry Drive. The victim in that incident received what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries, McKneely said.
Anyone with information on either incident is asked to contact BRPD at (225) 389-4869 or call Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-7867.
