The Baton Rouge Police Department is looking for a man they say fatally shot and killed his ex-girlfriend. Sgt. Don Coppola says 52-year-old Robert Antoine is accused of opening fire on two individuals early Saturday morning, striking one whom police believe was his ex-girlfriend.
"Unfortunately she did not make it," said Coppola.
Copolla says Antoine was wanted for two counts of attempted second degree and his charges will be upgraded. He says the victim, 41-year-old Monique Maxie of Baton Rouge, was getting out of a vehicle with another person.
"They were walking up to a residence when shots were fired," said Coppola. "She was the only one struck and she later died."
Anyone with information on this man’s whereabouts is urged to contact authorities. Copolla says Antoine should be considered dangerous.
