BATON ROUGE - The Baton Rouge Police Department arrested a man on attempted murder charges after he was accused of shooting at a home while people were inside.

On June 23 around 3:48 p.m. BRPD responded to the 1400 block of Convention Street in reference to a shots fired call.

Upon arrival, officers made contact with the victims at the location where they stated that 19-year-old Adam Metevia shot twice at their home with a handgun.

BRPD patrolled the area and made contact with Metevia who told officers that he did shoot at the victims' home due to a verbal altercation that took place days before the shooting.

Metevia was then searched and a substance consistent with crack cocaine was found in his pocket. Metevia also told officers where the handgun that was used in the shooting was located.

Metevia was charged with attempted second degree murder, illegal discharge of a firearm, aggravated criminal damage to property, possession of a Schedule III drug and illegal carrying of weapons.
