New arrest made in pizza delivery shooting
BATON ROUGE - Police arrested a second suspect this week accused in a robbery and shooting involving a pizza delivery driver.
Baton Rouge Police booked 17-year-old Kendell Allen into the parish jail overnight on charges of attempted second-degree murder and armed robbery.
The shooting and robbery happened on Oct. 1 when a pizza delivery driver said she was attacked by three teens who shot her and stole the food she had in her car. Police later arrested a 15-year-old suspected of being involved, and on Thursday named Allen and 17-year-old Charlie Ivery as additional suspects who should be considered armed and dangerous.
According to arrest records on Oct. 8 investigators searched a residence on Shelley Street near where the robbery happened. Police said they found a hooded sweatshirt matching the description of one worn by a suspect in the robbery, a hot wing box and the phone used to call in the delivery order. Police said neighbors also told them the 15-year-old connected to the robbery hung out with Allen at a residence on Denham Street.
Police said they later found Allen at the Denham Street residence and put him in a line up with five other people. Detectives said the victim identified Allen within a few seconds as one of the possible shooters, saying he took the pizza with him when he ran from the scene.
Officers booked Allen into the parish jail where he was given a $200,000 bond. Investigators said they are still looking for Ivery, and asked anyone with information as to his whereabouts to call BRPD at (225) 317-1704.
