Alleged argument over money leads to drive-by shooting on LSU’s campus; arrests made
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Two people were arrested in connection to a shooting on LSU’s campus early Thursday morning, the university announced.
According to a spokesman from the college, LSU Police and BRPD worked together to arrest the two suspects in the incident.
No members of the LSU community were involved in the incident.
The victim told police several men were chasing him in a white “Bentley truck” and shooting at him, arrest records show.
Officials say Gavin Teague is accused of shooting at and chasing a victim while driving on LSU’s campus.
According to arrest records, the suspect allegedly gave the victim $200 to get him to help him find his truck, which he thought was stolen.
After finding the truck, which turned out not to be stolen, the suspect asked the victim for the money back, but the victim left without doing so, and the suspect chased him down and shot at him, according to arrest records.
He later passed by and shot at him again while in a different vehicle with several others, records show.
This happened on Dalrymple Drive near W. Lakeshore Drive at around 2 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 17.
Teague is charged with one count of illegal use of weapons and one count of assault by a drive-by shooting.
Jevaughn Williams was arrested alongside Teague. Williams was booked into EBR Parish Prison on a drug possession charge, but jail records show he has already bonded out.
Teague remains in EBR Parish Prison, jail records show.
The LSU Police Department informed the LSU community about the incident on Thursday, Nov. 17, around 2:45 a.m. with an alert that read, “Officers are investigating a report of shots heard near Dalrymple at West Lakeshore. Avoid the area.”
Around 3:15 a.m., police announced officers completed the investigation and there is no further threat to campus.
