BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The man taken into custody and admitted to the hospital after he allegedly fired shots near a chemical plant Friday morning is in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison where his bond is set at $32,500.

Louisiana State Police reported the shooting happened in the parking lot of the ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Polyolefins plant on Scenic Highway in north Baton Rouge. 

Tpr. Jared Sandifer with Louisiana State Police said an officer with the Department of Public Safety reported seeing a vehicle moving erratically in the road and abruptly stop. He said the officer stated 28-year-old Telvin Henyard, of Woodville, Mississippi, jumped out with a gun in his hand and started firing. He described it as random fire with no specific target.

According to Sandifer, the officer saw what he believed was an attempted carjacking and called for backup. 

Henyard allegedly walked to the parking lot of the plant and continued firing into the air. Authorities said the suspect entered the lobby area, but security stopped him from getting into the plant.

Henyard was taken to Baton Rouge General Mid-City for observation as a precaution. After being released, he was transported to the EBR Parish Prison and booked on charges of carjacking, assault, disturbing the peace, and illegal use of a weapon.
