BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Authorities said one of two teens wanted as a Crime Stoppers fugitive in connection with the shooting and robbery of a pizza delivery driver was arrested Thursday night.
Crime Stoppers reported Kendell Allen, 17, was arrested by officers with the Baton Rouge Police Department and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on charges of attempted first-degree murder and armed robbery. No bond was set.
Charlie Ivery, 17, remains at large. He is also wanted on attempted first-degree murder and armed robbery charges. Police said the public stepped up big and gave them information that led to the arrest of a 15-year-old boy last week on the same charges. Due to his age, the boy's name was not released. That could change if it is decided to charge him as an adult.
According to investigators, the incident happened on Shelley Street between Maple Drive and Lemonwood Drive on October 1 around 11:15 p.m. Cpl. L'Jean Mckneely with BRPD said the 20-year-old Domino's driver was making a delivery in the area when three teens tried to force their way into her car.
Police said one of them pulled out a handgun and shot the delivery worker in the arm. They added the suspects then grabbed the food and ran away. The woman called police and was taken to the hospital. Her current condition is unknown.
Detectives have not indicated which teen is suspected of firing the gun that wounded the driver.
