A 17-year-old boy was arrested Saturday after he allegedly shot the man who was robbing him, Baton Rouge police said.
While police were interviewing Tyquoan Carter, 6875 Harry Drive, Apt. 72, Baton Rouge, he admitted to recently robbing a Dollar General store with two accomplices, according to an affidavit of probable cause.
On Sept. 16, Carter, along with the two suspected accomplices, held up a Dollar General store in the 1900 block of Plank Road while children and customers were present, an affidavit says.
The suspects entered the store around 8 p.m., waving guns and demanding money from store employees, the affidavit says.
The affidavits said police are also investigating recent robberies at other Dollar General stores.
A Sunday afternoon fire northwest of Zachary torched a mobile home and a building attached to it.
Firefighters were called out shortly after 2 p.m. to West Port Hudson Plains Road, where they found the mobile home engulfed in flames, said Deputy Chief David Armand, of the Zachary Fire Department.
No one was injured in the fire, and it appeared that no one lived in the mobile home, Armand said.
It took firefighters about 30 minutes to bring the fire under control, Armand said.
