Deadly weekend shooting off N Acadian Thruway likely justified, police say
BATON ROUGE - One person was killed and another is in critical condition after a shooting just off N Acadian Thruway Saturday evening.
Authorities said the shooting happened at the corner of N 31st and Iroquois Street. Police identified the person killed as 26-year-old Nikolas Ell.
Baton Rouge Police said Tuesday that they suspect all three men knew each other prior to the shooting and the killing would likely be ruled a justifiable homicide.
