Police: Shooter Apparently Justified In Fatal Shooting Of 14-Year-Old Boy

Baton Rouge Police say a man they have yet to locate was apparently justified in the Wednesday morning fatal shooting of 14-year-old Da’Vonte Reed.

The teenager was shot when he allegedly attempted to rob the victim near the intersection of Charles and Mission.

His body was later dumped onto North Sherwood Drive by the driver of the car, 17-year-old Demarcus Alexander, who was wounded by the gunfire.

Sergeant Don Kelly says police have charged Alexander with first-degree murder, quote, “because he was involved in the commission of an armed robbery where someone died.” He says the actual shooter is believed to have fired his weapon in self-defense and will not face any criminal charges.
