Accused gunman arrested in killing

Baton Rouge police on Friday arrested the 19-year-old man accused of fatally shooting his cousin Monday in an Old South Baton Rouge home.

Devon Bowie, 19, 1108 St. Joseph St., was booked into Parish Prison on counts of second-degree murder and illegal use of a weapon in the death of Patrick Williams, prison records show.

Williams, 16, was shot several times.

On Thursday, Baton Rouge police spokesman Cpl. Don Coppola Jr., said the shooting was a culmination on an ongoing dispute between the two.

Williams was found dead in the home at 1108 St. Joseph St., about 11:30 a.m. Monday after officers responded to calls of shots fired inside the home.

Williams had been on probation for simple robbery at the time of his death and was one of three juveniles found to have committed a robbery at LSU in April.
