BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — The Baton Rouge Police Department arrested a suspect in connection to a shooting on Wednesday morning.
Police say around 9 a.m. Wednesday morning, officers responded to a shooting near a residence on Parktrail Avenue.
During an investigation, detectives learned that the female victim alerted police that her ex-boyfriend, Jake Rayborn, 32, had entered the residence without her permission. Rayborn reportedly gained entry by using a sledgehammer. Once inside the residence, Rayborn gained possession of a gun and started shooting.
The home was occupied by the female victim, her three-year-old son, and her current boyfriend at the time of the shooting. The current boyfriend retaliated with shots, striking Rayborn. Rayborn was taken to a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
Rayborn was arrested on charges of possession of a firearm, three counts of attempted first-degree murder, and home invasion.
A restraining order against Rayborn was filed and is currently pending. The couple was reportedly separated for four months.
This is an ongoing investigation.
