A man accused of shooting a person Sunday morning, then stealing that person’s car, has been arrested.

Baton Rouge police booked Matthew Davis, 22, 1223 Terrance St., Baton Rouge, into Parish Prison on one count each of attempted first-degree murder and first-degree robbery, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

The victim, who suffered two gunshot wounds, told police the assailant, a man known as “Matt,” took the victim’s car, the affidavit says.

Police found the car traveling east in the 4900 block of Government Street and when they stopped and searched it, they found a handgun, the affidavit says.

Davis told police the gun was not his and he had permission to take the car, the affidavit says.

The affidavit provided no additional information about the victim.

Man arrested in ambush, shooting

Baton Rouge police on Saturday arrested a suspect in a shooting Thursday that left the victim with life-threatening wounds.

Deandrea D’Marcus Williams Jr., 19, 5112 McClelland Drive, was booked into Parish Prison on counts of attempted second-degree murder and illegal use of a weapon, prison records show.

Williams’ arrest document says he and another person hid in some bushes at 5284 Clayton St., waiting for the victim.

The victim and a witness walked home from a store carrying grocery bags, the document says. When the victim walked into the driveway, the two people came out from the bushes.

“At least one suspect produced a firearm, pointed the firearm at the victim, then fired multiple times,” the document says.

The victim fell to the ground while the gunman and the other person ran away.

The victim identified Williams as the man who shot him after he saw Williams’ picture in a photographic line up, the document says.

Jose Ovidio Alvarez, 28, 7950 Hooper Road, No. 3, also was booked on a count of indecent behavior with a juvenile.

The victim’s mother reported to the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office that her child told some friends about the incident after having bad dreams about it, and then she learned about it, too, Alvarez’s arrest document says.

During an interview Tuesday, the victim told deputies about the incident, and said Alvarez also had shown the victim pornographic pictures, the arrest document says.
