Man killed in apartment complex shooting

An 18-year-old man was shot and killed early Tuesday morning at a north Baton Rouge apartment complex.

Baton Rouge police found Devonta Jenks, 18, 4417 Cannon St., shot once in the chest shortly before 2:30 a.m. in a breezeway at the Spanish Arms Apartments, 4343 Denham St., police spokesman Cpl. L’Jean McKneely said.

He died at the scene, McKneely said.

So far, police have not found any witnesses to the shooting, McKneely said.

Police also have not identified a motive, McKneely said.

The shooting appears to be the first in 2014 in the 70805 area code, which is one of the areas an anti-crime initiative, called the Baton Rouge Area Violence Elimination program, has been focused.
