BATON ROUGE – Deputies say two men wanted for a Monday night shooting in Baton Rouge are in critical condition after trying to rob another person in Breaux Bridge Tuesday morning.
According to the St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office, the men wanted have been identified as 26-year-old Joseph Bruce Broussard and 31-year-old Drewe Christopher Schexnide. Deputies responded to a report of a shooting on Aguillard Road in Breaux Bridge around 3 a.m. Tuesday.
Investigators learned that one suspect rang a doorbell at the home and waited for the homeowner to answer. When the resident approached the door, a second suspect appeared with a handgun.
Deputies say both suspects were shot by the homeowner. One suspect tried to flee the scene but was apprehended short time later by authorities. Both suspects were transported to a local hospital in critical condition.
Investigators say both suspects were wanted for another botched armed robbery in Baton Rouge just hours before the shooting in St. Martin Parish. One homeowner was shot after wrestling for the robber's rifle. He suffered non life threatening injuries.
