BAKER - Police released a photo today of a teen they said lay in wait for a group of juveniles in Baker, then shot at them earlier this week.

Chief Mike Knaps with Baker Police said they are looking for Greg Anthony Morris Jr., 18, of Baton Rouge in connection with the shooting. Knaps said Morris is believed to be armed and dangerous.

Investigators said Morris targeted a group of juveniles in Baker, laying in wait for them before shooting at them from a vehicle with other juveniles inside it. Knaps said one of the juveniles in the vehicle was found to be a willing participant in the shooting, and was arrested in suspicion of being principal to attempted first degree murder.

Knaps said Morris is wanted for three counts of attempted first degree murder, aggravated assault by drive-by shooting, illegal use of a firearm, and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile.
Anyone with information about Morris' location should contact the Baker Police Department at (225) 775-6000.
