BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A father turned his 17-year-old son in to police after learning that his child was accused of pulling a gun on his friend and then firing a gun at his friend's mother.  

According to the probable cause report, the father called police and told them that his son was wanted in connection to the robbery and for firing off a shot at a woman, which shattered the rear window of her vehicle.  

The alleged robbery happened on Wednesday, Sept. 7 at roughly 12:30 a.m. on Savanna View Drive. The report says that Tavion Hampton pointed a gun at someone he considered to be a friend.  

"[He] asked his friend, the victim, to borrow his phone to make a call," notes the report. "Once he had the phone in hand, [Hampton] pulled out a black revolver and pointed it at the victim's head demanding the code for the phone."  

The victim reportedly got away and later the victim's mother attempted to confront the teens.  

"She knew the suspects and where they lived on the next street over and entered her vehicle to make contact with the defendant's mother," notes the report. "On Flora Drive, she observed both suspects and at that time [Hampton] pointed the gun and shot at her, shooting out the rear passenger side window, shattering it."  

The report also notes that Hampton has pending gun charges for another incident that happened earlier this year.  

Hampton was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on charges of aggravated criminal damage to property and robbery by firearm.  

The report adds that Justin Perry, 19, was also involved with the incident and was arrested the day of the incident.
