Louisiana Home Invader Shot And Killed By Resident


BATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA — On Monday night, a home invasion on Ontario Street near N. Acadian Thruway in Baton Rouge resulted in the death of the intruder, 37-year-old Lawrence Bajoie.

The Baton Rouge Police Department reported that Bajoie was shot multiple times after attempting to force his way into the residence around 10 p.m., according to WBRZ.

It is unclear if there was any connection between Bajoie and the resident.

Before the shooting, Bajoie had knocked on the door several times. Upon the resident opening the door, Bajoie allegedly attacked him, leading the resident to shoot Bajoie in self-defense.

Herbert Treece, a neighbor, commented, “They feared for their life, and I feel like it was what it was,” according to WBRZ.

Police are still investigating the case but reportedly currently believe the shooting was justifiable.

Treece, however, expressed a different view: “It’s never a good time for someone to die. There’s always a better way to handle something.”

What that “better way” should have been, however, Treece didn’t explain.
