Baton Rouge, Louisiana – A Louisiana felon has been arrested after allegedly shooting a man multiple times after a car crash. The Baton Rouge Police Department reported on November 18, 2022, that police arrested Darrel Jupiter, 46, for his alleged involvement in the shooting of a 31-year-old male victim in the 4200 block of North Blvd at approximately 3:41 pm on November 17.

One of the participating vehicle drivers summoned the 31-year-old male victim to the crash scene. Jupiter, the other driver in the accident, reportedly grew enraged and began firing at the 31-year-old victim, striking him multiple times.
