BATON ROUGE - One man is dead and no one has been arrested yet.

Gary Andrus, 51, was shot and killed in the yard of his neighbor's house after an altercation broke out.

Police officers responded to the 2600 block of Tecumseh St. around 8:00 Saturday night.

Neighbors who knew Andrus said he was disabled and used a cane.

They said they couldn't imagine him hurting anyone.

" I know Gary is not going to break in his house. Why did they shoot him? That's the question. He was disabled. He couldn't have done nothing to you. He couldn't harm a fly if he wanted to," said Wayne Reed, Andrus' neighbor.

Police have yet to make any arrests in the shooting.

The case is still under investigation.
