BATON ROUGE - Police and members of a U. S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force arrested a man suspected of shooting and killing someone during an argument in a Baton Rouge grocery store parking lot.
Police accused 18-year-old Sidney Ellois of second-degree murder, being a principal to attempted murder, contributing to the delinquency of minors, aggravated cruelty to animals, armed robbery and having a stolen firearm.
Investigators said they believe Ellois shot and killed 19-year-old Calvin Smith in the early hours of Jan. 11. Police said Smith was found shot in the parking lot of a grocery store at 2944 Plank Road around 1:13 a.m. He later died at a local hospital.
Police said they received a tip which led them to Ellois's location at a home on Wilmot Street Friday, where he was arrested. He will be booked into the parish jail Friday afternoon on the above charges.
