Frank Atkins was arrested by U.S. Marshals Wednesday around 1 p.m. at an apartment complex on North Ardenwood. Police were able to locate Atkins because of a tip from someone in the community.
His estranged wife, Kayla Atkins, was shot in the neck and back while she was sitting in a car on Bay Street.
The shooting happened on Bay Street just after 12:30 p.m., but Kayla Atkins, 23, was able to get away and she drove a couple of blocks to a parking lot on Choctaw Road near Scenic Hwy. where emergency officials found her.
Rosalyn Crump, the mother of the shooting victim, says her daughter is four months pregnant and is currently in ICU. Crump tells WAFB Frank Atkins to kill her daughter Sunday by beating and trying to strangle her. The suspect was arrested for that incident and got out of jail Monday.
When he was released from jail, Crump says he was ordered to wear an ankle monitor. He was supposed to pick up his ankle monitor from the police department Tuesday.
According to court records, Kayla filed for a temporary restraining order Monday, saying her husband was trying to kill her. Frank Atkins has a history of crime. He has previously been convicted of resisting an officer, simple battery, possession of drug paraphernalia, burglary and felony drug possession.
According to Crump, Kayla is in stable condition and is alert and talking at the hospital.
Atkins will be booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison charged with attempted second degree murder, illegal use of a dangerous weapon and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
According to Baton Rouge Police, Atkins was quickly developed as a suspect due to tips from the community and evidence discovered during the investigation.
