BATON ROUGE- Baton Rouge Police say Phillip Carter and Robert Pierson have been arrested in connection with a shooting during an armed robbery.

It happened at a gas station on the corner of Saint Ferdinand Street and Government Street around 3:00 am.  Police say they responded and later caught the pair in the Beauregard Town area.  The delivery driver was found near his 18 wheeler.  His injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

Late last night, another man was shot at an apartment complex on Wyoming Street.  It happened in front of his girlfriend and two week old son.  Police say the man went outside to smoke and was attacked.  Some of his neighbors say they plan on moving as soon as possible because of a growing problem with crime.

Police are trying to determine if there is a link between the crimes.
