BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Police said a teen was taken into custody for shooting a 44-year-old man and taking his bicycle early Thursday morning.

Attempted second-degree murder
Illegal use of a dangerous weapon
Illegal possession of a firearm by a juvenile
The shooting happened on North Foster Drive near Winbourne Avenue around 2:30 a.m. Police said the suspect walked up to the victim wearing a ski mask and just started shooting. The victim was hit by three rounds.
