Ernest Felton Photos: Must-See Pictures of SU Shooter

Baton Rouge Police have arrested Ernest Bernard Felton and one other man involved in a shooting at Southern University that resulted in the death of two innocent bystanders and the injury of one of the shooters involved.

Ernest Bernard Felton, the 22-year-old man pictured above, was arrested and booked late Sunday night for second-degree attempted murder and the illegal use of a firearm. His bond has been set at $90,000.

Police believe that Felton, who played defensive end at Southern University for one year, got into a verbal altercation with Brandon Henderson that soon turned violent. The two men exchanged gunfire outside The Cottages on Ben Hur Drive, killing Annette January (19-years-old of Gary, Indiana) and sophomore Lashuntae Benton (19-years-old of Lake Charles, LA). Both women were student-athletes at Southern University. January was a track-and-field athlete and Benton was a student athletic trainer.

Ernest is from Coral Gables, Florida. The police are waiting for forensics to determine who was the shooter between Ernest and Brandon.
