BATON ROUGE - Two suspects were arrested after a shooting Friday at an apartment complex on Florida Boulevard that killed a teenage girl.

The Baton Rouge Police Department said 17-year-old Alashia Collins was killed in the shooting. Joshua London, 23, and Queriana Richard, 20, were arrested for their involvement in her death.

Police say the shooting happened around 6:52 p.m. at Broadmoor Plantation Apartments on Florida Boulevard.
