BATON ROUGE - Police said they arrested a man accused of attempted second degree murder after a fight between two Walmart employees escalated into a shooting.

Officers said they arrested Red Marquillis, 21, after he shot and wounded his co-worker Monday.

Authorities said a dispute began between co-workers inside the store on College Dr. and continued outside when the two employees went on break.

Police said surveillance camera footage confirmed the eyewitness accounts of the incident.

Marquillis faces charges of attempted second degree murder and illegal use of a weapon.
