BATON ROUGE – Police say a Baton Rouge man has been arrested after an argument between friends ended in a shooting early Wednesday morning.

According to arrest records, the victim told Baton Rouge Police detectives that he was returning home around 12:50 a.m. Wednesday after working all day. After pulling into his driveway on Hanks Drive, the victim said he saw 23-year-old Kedrick Glasper talking to another friend.

The victim told police that he told the two men to go somewhere else so he could sleep. The comment caused the men to get into a verbal argument that ended when Glasper pulled a handgun and fired several times at the victim.

Baton Rouge Police report that the gunfire stuck the victim twice as well as the victim’s car. Glasper then fled the scene.

The victim later identified Glasper, a childhood friend, as the shooter. Glasper was arrested Friday.

Glasper was booked on attempted second degree murder, illegal use of a weapon, convicted felon in possession of a firearm and aggravated damage to property.
