They fired shots at another 26-year-old man, but he was not hit.
Fields was booked into the parish prison and charged with two counts of first degree murder, one count of attempted murder and one count of armed robbery.
The second man involved in this incident remains unidentified and at large. Anyone with information on his identity is urged to contact the Baton Rouge Police Department Homicide Division at 225-389-4869.
