Sheriff's deputies have released the name of a person of interest in a deadly shooting that happened today in the Gardere area.

19-year-old Martin Burnell Robertson is being sought for questioning by the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office after 21-year-old Javon Brooks was shot and killed earlier today.

Deputies were called to the 8000 block of Skysail Avenue around 2:30 p.m. after a neighbor reported they heard shots fired at a nearby residence.  They found Brooks in the area with a gunshot wound to his head; he was taken Baton Rouge General Hospital on Bluebonnet where he later died from his injuries.

If you have any information about today's shooting or Robertson's location, call the sheriff's office at (225) 389-5000.
