BATON ROUGE - Police arrested a teen in connection with a shooting in Baton Rouge they said was over a fight between two pets.

Cpl. Tommy Stubbs said officers arrested a 15-year-old in suspicion of shooting another man at 680 Sharp Lane Tuesday evening.

Stubbs said anonymous tips helped them identify the suspect. He said detectives learned the teen shot the victim due to a dispute about the shooter's dog trying to attack the victim's cat.

Authorities booked the teen into the East Baton Rouge Juvenile Detention Center. He faces charges for second-degree attempted murder, illegal discharge of a weapon, and simple criminal damage to property.

The victim remains hospitalized in critical condition.
