Teen and adult wanted in connection with overnight murder
BATON ROUGE – Sheriff's deputies are looking for a teenager and a 20-year-old in connection with an overnight murder that spawned a massive manhunt Wednesday evening and early Thursday morning.
Osval Andrades, 22, was shot and killed on Tracy Avenue near the Greenwell Springs/Joor intersection. A huge contingent of deputies and Baton Rouge Police used search teams, including K9 deputies and a helicopter, to search for suspects.
Earlier Thursday, deputies said they arrested a 16-year-old on principal to first degree murder and armed robbery. The teen's name was not released because of their age.
Later, deputies said they were looking for Lawrence Bennett, 17, of Silverleave Avenue in Baton Rouge and Karlos Ghoram, 20. Bennett is wanted on the same principal charges as the juvenile already in jail. Ghoram is wanted for murder and robbery.
