A man sitting on the front porch of a Nebraska Street home in Baton Rouge Thursday morning told police that two men jumped out of a stopped car and began shooting at him.
Thirty-seven shots were fired and the two shooters jumped back in the car driven by Derrick Keith Guice, 20, of 806 Julia St., a Baton Rouge Police report says. The report does not say whether any of the 37 bullets hit the victim on the porch at 1962 Nebraska St., but he was able to identify Guice as the driver.
Guice was booked into Parish Prison Thursday night as a principal to two counts of aggravated criminal damage to property and one count of principal to attempted second-degree muder, illegal use of a weapon, and simple criminal damage to property.
According to the report, two cars, including a Nissan driven by Guice, passed in front of the residence two times at about 9:50 a.m. Thursday, and on the third time the two shooters jumped out of the car after it stopped and began firing their guns. Bullets did hit the Nebraska Street house, where another person was inside. In addition, an unoccupied car was hit by gunfire.

East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore III confirmed Friday morning that his office is working with Baton Rouge Police Department and East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office to determine whether the Thursday shooting on Nebraska Street is related to another shooting on the same street on Wednesday.

The victim's mother said he son was riding his bicycle near the family home at the time he was shot.
Court records indicate that Guice is the brother of LSU running back Derrius Guice.
