A second man has been arrested in a shooting during an armed robbery last month at Coursey Place Apartments, the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office reports.
Javon Williams, 23, of Baton Rouge, was booked Tuesday into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on counts of attempted first-degree murder, armed robbery and illegal use of a weapon.
According to arrest documents, Williams shot and injured a 41-year-old man at the apartment complex in the early hours of May 21. The victim suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the torso and was transported to an area hospital in critical condition.

The man told police he was shot during an armed robbery near his parked vehicle at the complex.
Detectives discovered video surveillance from a nearby business that aided in the arrest of another suspect, Darius Brooks, 19. Brooks was booked Monday on the same counts as Williams.
Brooks told detectives that he and Williams went to meet the victim for a drug transaction, but they ended up arguing over unpaid debts from a previous purchase, the arrest report says. Brooks told authorities he and Williams held the victim down while they took his cell phone and wallet.
During the robbery, Williams allegedly shot the victim several times then fled with Brooks, according to the arrest report.
