Search underway for suspected shooter

Baton Rouge Police spent several hours searching for a suspected gunman who is accused of having shot a 17-yr-old and then fleeing.

The shooting happened around 4pm in the 1700 block of N. Harco Dr. When an officer, who happened to be in the area, heard the shots, he tried to chase behind the gunman. That’s when the suspect allegedly took off with a rifle in his hands.

A perimeter was set up and officers searched for him in the Robbie Ave. area, about half a mile away from the shooting scene.

Multiple agencies with BRPD searched for the suspected gunman including K-9 units and BRPD’s helicopter.
