It did not end there though, as one of the passengers who was robbed had a handgun.
A confrontation ensued during which “shots were fired and the juvenile’s vehicle was struck multiple times as he fled,” according to the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office.
After escaping the gunfire, the teenager made his to way to his grandmother’s home.
