Kenner man surrenders in fatal shooting

A 75-year-old man surrendered to Kenner police Friday in the shooting death of a 27-year-old River Ridge man at Performance Automotive in Kenner.

The victim, Shane Vicknair, 27, was found shot to death at 10 a.m. at the business, 2416 Connecticut Ave., by a man driving a blue Chevrolet pickup truck, police Sgt. Brian McGregor said in a news release.

Hours after the shooting, Roger Batiste, 1122 Batiste Lane, LaPlace, surrendered to police with his attorney present and also turned in a gun allegedly used in the shooting , McGregor said.

Batiste was booked with second-degree murder, but no bond has been set, McGregor said.

The motive seems to be an argument that escalated, McGregor said.
