Baton Rouge Police are investigating a deadly shooting that was picked up by one of the city’s shot spotters.

18-year-old Devin Tremaine Ford was found with multiple gunshot wounds last night around 7:50 p.m., and later died from those injuries.

Cpl. L’Jean McKneely said a shot spotting device had alerted officers of shots being fired in that area, and they found Ford in his vehicle when they went to investigate.

The motive for this shooting is unknown.

Anyone with information about who may have shot Ford is urged to contact the BRPD Homicide Office at (225) 389-4869.
