Two Baton Rouge men were indicted Thursday, one on a manslaughter charge, in an April 9 shooting on North Donmoor Avenue.
An East Baton Rouge Parish grand jury charged Leonardo Lewitt McCrary, 22, 6820 Cezanne Ave., with manslaughter and Raymond Robins, 24, 6767 Titian Ave., with two counts of attempted second-degree murder and one count of illegal use of weapons.
McCrary is accused of killing Quenton Pollard, 23.
The shooting occurred after two shopkeepers — Gahed Alrabeei and Jamal Musaid — saw a man they believed had stolen goods from their store standing with several other men in the 1000 block of North Donmoor, police have said.
A discussion took place, after which the two shopkeepers got into their car to leave, police said.
As the shopkeepers were leaving, McCrary and Robins shot at them, and the shopkeepers returned fire, police said.
Pollard, who was not the man the shopkeepers had confronted as a thief, was struck in the head during the exchange of gunfire, police said.
Manslaughter is punishable by up to 40 years in prison.
The case has been assigned to state District Judge Chip Moore.
