BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A deputy has shot a man accused of robbing a customer inside a Baton Rouge gas station.
Media outlets report the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office says 21-year-old Jeremy Blouin was charged Wednesday with armed robbery.
Arrest records say Blouin followed a customer into a RaceTrac bathroom, put what appeared to be a gun to the victim's head and took money before fleeing.
Deputies spotted Blouin in a parking lot, where documents say he began fighting deputies and a deputy shot Blouin in the arm. No deputies were hurt.
Officials say Blouin escaped again but was recaptured. Deputies recovered over $400 in cash and a lighter designed to look like a pistol.
Blouin was treated at a hospital and released back to deputies. It's unclear if he has an attorney.
