BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Officers with the Baton Rouge Police Department have arrested the fourth suspect in connection with the shooting and robbery of a pizza delivery driver. Three other teens have already been arrested in this case.
Police say that Mark Shorter, 17, was arrested Tuesday on charges of attempted first-degree murder and armed robbery. He is accused of shooting a pizza delivery driver after another teen tried to force their way into her car.
According to investigators, the incident happened on Shelley Street between Maple Drive and Lemonwood Drive on October 1 around 11:15 p.m. Police said the 20-year-old Domino's driver was making a delivery in the area when a 15-year-old teen pulled a handgun on her.
The victim told police that she pushed the teen away when they tried to get into her vehicle.
According to the report, Shorter then shot the delivery worker in the right arm, breaking the bone. Police 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.
Shorter was booked in to the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison. His bond has not been set yet.
Kendell Allen, 17, was arrested BRPD on October 16 and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on charges of attempted first-degree murder and armed robbery. His bond was set at $200,000.
Charlie Ivery, 17, was arrested on October 24. He was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on charges of attempted first-degree murder, armed robbery and illegal carrying of weapons. His bond was set at $250,000.
Police said the public stepped up big and gave them information that led several of the arrests including the 15-year-old boy on October 9. He was also charged with armed robbery and attempted first-degree murder. Due to his age, the boy's name was not released. That could change if it is decided to charge him as an adult.
