A 74-year-old woman checking out a noise on her carport was shot dead by a teenager during an attempted armed robbery, according to the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office.
A call came in about 9 p.m. Monday about a shooting on Morel Avenue, in the Antioch Villa subdivision near Tiger Bend and Antioch roads. Deputies say Angela Haymon had gone outside after hearing a noise and was shot and killed by a 15-year-old male.
Officials say Haymon’s husband was inside at the time and, after hearing shots, went outside and exchanged gunfire with the teen, who was wounded.
The Sheriff’s Office said the boy fled and sought help at a home several doors down. A neighbor on Tuesday described it as one about 400 feet away from the couple’s home. The suspect was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive his injuries, which a spokesperson detailed as serious but not life-threatening.
The teenager faces one count each of first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, attempted armed robbery and illegal use of a weapon.
On Tuesday, the 16-year-old brother of the teen was also arrested for principal to armed robbery and principal to first-degree murder.
Authorities have not detailed the role they believe the brother played in the attack.
A second suspect has been arrested in connection to the death of a 74-year-old woman who confronted an intruder Monday night.
The neighborhood, on the east side of Antioch Road, contains mainly single-family, one-level homes. A few people walked their dogs or pushed children in strollers near the scene Tuesday morning.
The home, which neighbors said investigators had taped off until 4 a.m., had a sign in its lawn advertising it for sale; Zillow shows it has been on the market for a little more than eight months. Other than a rusted basketball goal to the side of the driveway, the house was neat and the carport empty.
A neighbor, who declined to be named, said a retired couple has lived at the house for the last four or five years. He has exchanged comments about the weather with them and talked about home repair in the months following the 2016 flood but did not know much else about them beyond that.
The neighbor also said he has lived in the subdivision for the last 30 years and “nothing like this has ever happened” before. There had been a few car break-ins and the occasional person driving slowly past houses — never anything so violent and unexpected.
"Car burglaries are not uncommon, anytime you have neighborhoods like that where it's easy for suspects to run down the street while trying multiple door handles," Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks said. "It's not uncommon to have clusters of vehicle burglaries."
Earlier in the day Monday, the Baton Rouge Police Department responded to two other unrelated shootings on Wyandotte Street and Winbourne Avenue.
One person was killed and another person was injured in a Monday evening shooting near Tiger Bend Road, according to a report from WBRZ.
Editor’s Note: This report was changed Jan. 7, 2020 to reflect the location of the victim’s house is located in Antioch Villa subdivision, not Woodlawn Acres.
