Gun recovered after man found hiding in bushes
BATON ROUGE - Police arrested a man they believe was lying in wait with a weapon outside the home of his girlfriend Monday night.
Marlon Morris was arrested after running from police and charged with attempted murder, resisting an officer and aggravated assault with a firearm. Morris was booked into jail after police were called twice to the same address in Old South Baton Rouge.
According to arrest records, police were first dispatched to a location on Louise Street just before 10 p.m. A caller advised Morris threatened his girlfriend and her father with a gun. The pair got away unharmed and reported the altercation.
About 90 minutes later, police were dispatched again to the address where someone said Morris had returned and was hiding in bushes with a gun. Police found Morris walking through a field and had to use a stun gun to detain him after he tried to run away.
Investigators said they found a gun hidden in an area where Morris was last seen.
