Man arrested after being tazed, shot twice by private security guard

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Police have arrested a man involved in a bizarre crash and shooting that sent a man to the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds on the morning of September 3, 2015.

The Baton Rouge Police Department reported it happened on South Sherwood Forest near Major Oak Drive around 8:30 a.m.

Investigators said a 33-year-old man, now identified as Derwin Wilson, crashed into "multiple things" while driving on North Sherwood Forest Boulevard and then stopped in oncoming traffic on South Sherwood Forest Boulevard.

They added a 23-year-old man who works as a security guard saw the stopped vehicle and went to check on the driver. Authorities reported the driver started a fight with the security guard and the security guard ended up shooting the driver during the fight. They added the driver was not armed. That is when about 12 police officers arrived on the scene.

In video obtained by 9News, the man who was shot by the security guard is seen crawling and visibly hurt. With guns drawn, police officers attempted to arrest the man. When he continues to move around, police appear to taze him twice.

Police said the driver suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the stomach. He was taken to the hospital and was released from the hospital on September 15, 2015.

Officers are in the process of booking Wilson into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.

Wilson has a laundry list of priors, including a warrant for armed robbery which was issued in June. He has served time on drug charges, entry after remaining forbidden, illegal possession of a firearm by a felon, and simple burglary.

The investigation is ongoing.
