Baton Rouge, LA – In a significant development, the Baton Rouge police Department has apprehended a suspect believed to be involved in a fatal shooting that occurred on Washington Avenue over the weekend. The incident has shocked the local community and left many seeking answers.
According to authorities, Travelle Burris, a 19-year-old individual, along with two juveniles, has been arrested in connection with the shooting. The motive behind the incident is believed to be a robbery, shedding light on the potential dangers lurking in the area.
Following the arrest, Burris was swiftly booked into the East Baton Rouge Prison, facing charges of first-degree murder, armed robbery, and illegal use of a weapon. The two juveniles, whose identities have been withheld, were taken into custody and booked into the EBR Juvenile Detention Center, facing the same charges as Burris.
