BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Baton Rouge police have arrested a man on ten counts of attempted first-degree murder.

The multiple charges are because a shooting occurred in an area where at least ten people were present, investigators said.

Baton Rouge Police Detectives along with assistance from the U.S. Marshal’s Office arrested Tyrell Givens, age 34, for his involvement in a shooting that occurred on March 27, 2021, around 5:30 p.m. at his residence.

Givens fired multiple gunshots at family members after having a verbal argument during a family function.

Givens was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison with 10 counts of Attempt 1st Degree Murder and Illegal Use of a Weapon.

The same individual is also being investigated for his alleged involvement in “other violent crimes” in the city, a law enforcement source said Thursday.

BRPD is expected to release more details on the arrest later in the day.
