Police investigating deadly shooting on Convention St.
BATON ROUGE - A teen accused of murdering a man earlier this year has requested a bond reduction leading up to the birth of her child.
18-year-old Amaiah Sheppard was arrested July 10 and faces a second-degree murder charge in the shooting death of 47-year-old Robert Davis.
The shooting happened in May on Convention Street at N. 13th Street. Sources say Davis' body was found beside a home in the neighborhood.

Now seven months pregnant, Sheppard wants her bond reduced because she "would like to spend the time leading up to the birth of her child in a stress-free environment," according to the motion for bond reduction, which appears to have been filed Wednesday, July 24.
