EBRSO arrests second man in cell phone murder
BATON ROUGE - Deputies arrested a second man in connection with a September shooting over a cell phone that left one man dead.
Jordan Harris, 17, was booked on charges of first degree murder and armed robbery shortly after 1 a.m. on Wednesday morning, according to detectives.
Investigators said Harris admitted to detectives that he and James Mills, 18, planned to rob Hancy Sanchez and his friend, but said he fled the scene when Mills shot Sanchez in the head. Mills was arrested by EBRSO deputies on the morning of Sept. 6, the day after the shooting happened.
According to detectives, Mills and Harris approached 24-year-old Sanchez outside of his apartment complex after 11 p.m. on Sept. 5 and asked to use his cell phone. Sanchez gave them his phone, but Mills pulled a gun and shot him in the head when he tried to take it back.
Sanchez was taken to the hospital, but died from his wounds.
