Zachary Police Department officers booked Lockett and Robinson into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison. The same evening, Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office Violent Crimes Unit contacted Zachary Police Department and informed officers that the arrestees apprehended by our heroes were suspects in a shooting that occurred on Jan. 2 in Ascension.
Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office officials said it appeared two suspects were breaking into a vehicle when the homeowner noticed. When the homeowner went outside, the suspects fled in their own vehicle. While fleeing, one of them fired multiple rounds hitting the homeowner’s wife.
She was grazed by a bullet and she did take herself to a hospital. She had non-life-threatening injuries.
