Baton Rouge Popeyes Employee Arrested for Shooting Co-Worker in the Butt
Forrest Gump once got shot in the buttocks. An employee at a Popeyes fast food restaurant in Baton Rouge can now make the same claim.
This all happened back on Wednesday, May 31 at the Popeyes on O'Neal Lane in Baton Rouge when a man shot a coworker who was walking away from a fight at the fast food restaurant where they both worked.
According to the Baton Rouge Police Department, Kieran Demond Johnson, 21, was arrested on Wednesday, June 7, and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on charges of attempted second-degree murder and illegal use of weapons.
Several employees, including the suspect's own mother, reportedly witnessed the shooting.
Arrest records show that Johnson and the victim got into a fight inside the restaurant but they were broken up by co-workers.
Then, as the victim walked outside, Johnson retrieved a gun from his bag and followed the man outside, shooting him twice. One of the shots hit him in the butt, according to arrest records.
The victim proceeded to run to a nearby Waffle House to get help while the suspect fled on foot.
Thankfully, the victim's injuries were non-life-threatening.
Jail records show that Johnson's bond was set at $20,230.
