Uniform Patrol Officers were dispatched to an apartment complex at 5905 Carpenter Rd. about 12:30 a.m. early last Friday in reference to an armed robbery, said Capt. Jay Sullivan.
Officers said that suspect Gregory Moore, 18, of 1331 Wellington Drive in Baton Rouge, was one of three people involved in the robbery of Raymoor Robertson.
According to police reports, several shots were fired during the robbery attempt, and Robertson was shot in the abdomen while attempting to disarm the shooter. Robertson was transported to Lane Regional Medical Center where he was listed in stable condition but is expected to make a full recovery, Sullivan said.
ZPD detectives arrested Moore and charged him with attempted second-degree murder and attempted armed robbery. He was later booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
Sullivan said more arrests are forthcoming relating to this investigation. If anyone has any information regarding this incident, please contact the Zachary Police Department at 225-654-1921.
