BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Investigators said a shooting that sent a man to the hospital Wednesday was the result of a family argument over a teen not wanting to go to school.
The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office reported D'Vonte Green, 17, was arrested in connection with the shooting on Meadow Bend Drive near Bayou Fountain Avenue.
According to the probable cause report, witnesses reported Green and the man were arguing in the front yard when Green pulled out a gun and fired about six shots at the victim. Reports indicate the shooter then ran away.
Deputies said they found Green shortly after the shooting and found the gun believed to have been used in the shooting in some bushes less than a block away from the scene.
The victim, whose name was not released, was taken to the hospital. Officials said his injuries are not considered life-threatening.
Green was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on charges of attempted second-degree murder and illegal use of a weapon.
His bond is set at $60,000.
