BATON ROUGE- A New Orleans man is being charged with attempted second-degree murder after allegedly shooting at a victim at least eight times.

On August 4, a victim was shot in the 4800 block of Gus Young Avenue. Even though the victim was only struck once, authorities say ballistic evidence proves the shooter fired at the victim at least eight times. Police said the number of shots fired shows an intent to kill.

The shooter was identified as Hendrick Tate. 

The Baton Rouge Police Department was able to obtain video footage from a nearby business. The footage showed Tate walking into the business on Gus Young Avenue before he walked outside and shot the victim. The shooting was also seen in the footage.
