BATON ROUGE - Police said a 15-year-old boy has been arrested for their involvement in the robbery and shooting of a pizza delivery driver earlier this month.

Cpl. L'Jean McKneely said tips called in by concerned citizens led to the teen's arrest.

BRPD said on Oct. 1 the 20-year-old delivery driver was making a stop in the 4000 block of Shelley Street when three people tried to force their way into the driver's vehicle. Detectives said the driver fought back, and was shot in the arm before the attackers grabbed the food and ran off.

Police initially said three attackers were teens aged 15-17.

McKneely said the teen was charged with armed robbery and attempted first-degree murder, and that the incident is still under investigation.
