BATON ROUGE - Police released the name of a 17-year-old Thursday who investigators said killed a Baton Rouge man and injured another this week.

Baton Rouge Police said Brandon Boyd is wanted for the shooting death of Emanuelle Myles, 24, during a fight Wednesday night on La Margie Avenue. Police said Boyd also shot a 19-year-old in the arm.

Investigators said Boyd fired into the crowd surrounding a fight fight, hitting Myles and the 19-year-old. Police said the 19-year-old was involved in the fight, but Myles and Boyd were bystanders.

EMS took both victims to the hospital, and police said Myles died Thursday from his injuries.

Anyone with information on Boyd's whereabouts should contact the Violent Crimes Unit at (225) 389-4869.
