Attempted murder suspects arrested
BATON ROUGE - Police have arrested two men for their suspected involvement in a shooting in Baton Rouge.

Officials say Gustave called the victims and asked them to give him a ride to Washington Avenue. After getting picked up and making another phone call, Harris came up from behind the car. That's when both Gustave and Harris pulled out hand guns. Gustave shot at one victim while Harris went through the other victim's pocket.
Gustave and Harris were booked with attempted 1st degree murder, attempted robbery, and illegal use of a dangerous weapon. No bond has been set.
