BATON ROUGE (NBC33) — The Baton Rouge Police Department is looking for Brandon Boyd, 17, of La Margie Avenue, for the murder of Emanuelle Myles, 24.
The incident happened Tuesday night in the 12000 block of La Margie Avenue. According to police, Boyd allegedly shot Myles in the head and shot a 19-year-old man in the arm.
Officers say there was a fistfight in the parking lot between four people, including the 19-year-old victim.
Boyd, who was not involved in the fistfight, fired multiple shots into the crowd, hitting Myles, who was just a bystander.
Both victims were taken to the hospital. Myles died Wednesday from injuries suffered during the shooting.
Anyone who has information on Boyd’s whereabouts should contact the Violent Crimes Unit at 389-4869 or Crime Stoppers at 344-7867.
