BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Authorities have released the name of the teenage girl who was killed and the name of the person who will face charges in a shootout that happened in a Glen Oaks neighborhood on Friday, Nov. 12.
A spokeswoman for the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office released a statement on Saturday, Nov. 13, identifying the victim as Tremiyah Lindsey, 16, of Baton Rouge.
According to EBRSO, she was in a vehicle with her mother and her brother that arrived at a home on Avocado Drive near Silverleaf Avenue around 3 p.m.
Investigators said Tremiyah Lindsey’s brother, Tremayne Lindsey, 20, then got out of the vehicle with an assault rifle and started shooting.
A relative of the people living in the home grabbed a gun and returned fire, according to the sheriff’s office. Deputies said Tremiyah Lindsey, Tremayne Lindsey, and their mother were all shot during the exchange of gunfire. Tremiyah Lindsey was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to EBRSO, the mother was injured but is expected to recover and Tremayne Lindsey was taken to an area hospital, where he was last listed in critical condition.
Upon his release from the hospital, deputies said Tremayne Lindsey will be charged with five counts of attempted first-degree murder and aggravated criminal damage to property. Officials added the investigation is ongoing and other charges may be pending.
Tremayne Lindsey’s background shows he was last arrested in late October on charges of distribution/manufacturing of a Schedule I drug, illegal possession of stolen firearms, and illegal carrying of weapons with drugs.
East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore was at the scene of the shooting Friday afternoon.
“It’s just unfortunate, sad,” said Moore. “We had another person, another young person lost their life and we need to find a way as a community to stop this.”
“This is a very nice neighborhood and a lot of really good people here. And I’m sure that they’re very disappointed and shocked that this is going on. Shows it can happen anywhere. Happens all over Baton Rouge and just yet another unfortunate situation that we need to find out why things like this occur,” added Moore.
