Teen among group jailed for woman's shooting death
BATON ROUGE - A teenager is among a group of three people booked into jail after an accidental shooting left a woman dead Saturday.
Police said Ajeanae Frazer, 20, was shot while riding in a vehicle with an unidentified 16-year-old who was holding an assault rifle. The gun mistakenly fired, hitting Frazer in the torso. The gunshot killed her, police said. The gunfire caused the vehicle the two were in to crash on Wayne Avenue shortly before 4 p.m.
The teenager was booked into juvenile detention on charges of negligent homicide and illegal possession of a firearm.
Police also charged Frazer's boyfriend, Michael Hasten, 25, with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and felon in possession of a firearm. Hasten's father, Mark Warner, 50, was charged, too. Police booked Warner into jail on charges of obstruction of justice and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Police said Hasten had a fight with people earlier in the day and solicited the help of the teenager by giving him the gun. After the shooting and traffic crash, police said Warner tried to hide the weapon.
