Louisiana Self-Defense: BRPD says LSU athletes shot, killed man who tried to rob them :: 12/22/2018

BATON ROUGE, La. — Baton Rouge police said 18-year-old Kobe Johnson was shot during an attempted robbery of two LSU athletes Saturday afternoon, according to WDSU's Baton Rouge affiliate WVLA.

According to police, the two student athletes were trying to sell an electronic item when Johnson pulled out a gun, attempting to rob the athletes. Authorities said one of the athletes was able to get the handgun away and fire, hitting Johnson multiple times WVLA reports.

Johnson died at the scene on 68th Ave. around noon Saturday.

The two students were detained for questioning after calling police to report the incident. After questioning and reviewing evidence, police released both of the student athletes from BRPD custody without charges. Sources say police are investigating whether the shooting was self-defense.

Sources have identified the two players involved as running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire and linebacker Jared Small.

It's still unclear which of the athletes had fired shots.

LSU Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Joe Alleva sent this statement Saturday which reads, "We have today been in constant contact with law enforcement regarding this terrible situation. Right now, our concern is for the safety and well being of our student-athletes. They have been involved in a traumatic incident and we have made our counselors available to assist immediately."
