Police searching for suspect in Thursday armed robbery
BATON ROUGE - Officers are looking for a suspect in a home invasion on North Donmoor Avenue Thursday.
According to an arrest record filed by the Baton Rouge Police Department, Shykeem Tyshawn McNeal is wanted on charges of aggravated battery, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and two counts of aggravated second degree battery.
Officers say they responded to the 6800 block of Rembrandt Avenue in reference to a shooting just after 1:45 p.m. Thursday. When on scene, they were told two victims left the scene in a personal vehicle with non-life threatening gun-shot wounds.
Less than one hour earlier, armed robbery detectives were responding to reports of a burglary at one of the victim's homes on North Donmoor. Police say a victim returned home around 1 p.m. after learning his wife was being held at gunpoint by two people. The victim, his daughter, and her boyfriend, got into an altercation with McNeal, who threatened them with a gun on Rembrandt, according to officers.
Police say during the struggle, McNeal hit the daughter's boyfriend with his gun, and the father and daughter were shot in the forearm and hand, respectively, while trying to take the weapon from the suspect.
Detectives say McNeal was previously convicted for Possession of Schedule II Drugs in 2012.
McNeal is a local rapper who goes by the stage name "Bama."
