UPDATE: EBRSO Investigates Trailer Park Shooting

East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s detectives responded to a shooting at 18733 Samuels Road yesterday at approximately 2:00 p.m. in which two men were shot and killed and a third injured.

Twenty-four-year-old Leonard Cummings III and 20-year-old Tyrion Gwinn, both residents of the trailer park, were found dead on the scene. A third man was injured and transported to the hospital. He is expected to fully recover.

Through the course of the investigation detectives were told that Cummings, Gwinn and the third man went to the trailer of 30-year-old Quinton George where they entered into a physical confrontation with 30-year-old Randy Johnson. During the physical altercation George allegedly produced a gun and fired at the three subjects. George and Johnson then went to Baker Police Department to report what occurred. EBRSO Detectives interviewed both men as well as other witnesses. At this time evidence on scene as well as witness statements indicate that the two deceased men were the aggressors in the incident. George was booked into parish prison for Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon and Johnson was booked a family court bench warrant.

This investigation is still ongoing.
