BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — A Baton Rouge man was arrested Wednesday in connection to a November shooting.
Michael Ray Chrisentery Jr., 31, was accused of shooting at a home on N. Acadian Thruway before 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 5. Police said there were three children inside the home and one adult outside during the shooting.
According to an affidavit, the shooting happened after an argument. Witnesses told investigators that Chrisentery fired shots from the parking lot of a bar.
Police documents showed that Chrisentery was tied to an earlier disturbance at Adam’s Grocery Store, where he was “unarmed with a firearm and creating a disturbance by demanding the return of his cell phone.” Detectives said he was detained but released after this incident.
According to the affidavit, later in the investigation, surveillance footage obtained by investigators showed Chrisentery in the store with a black handgun and making threats if he didn’t find his cell phone.
Chrisentery was charged with attempted first-degree murder, aggravated criminal damage to property and illegal use of weapons or dangerous instrumentalities.
