The Franklin Police Department announced Wednesday afternoon that their officers and U.S. Marshals had captured two people suspected of a September shooting in New Orleans.

The shooting, which happened on Canal Street, injured two women, though authorities said the injuries were not life threatening.

At 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, officers surrounded a Reddick Street apartment following a tip that the suspects might be inside.

Byron Wilson and Derrion Robinson, both 20, were taken into custody inside the apartment.

Both were wanted for Aggravated Battery by Shooting. According to Channel 4 WWL, Robinson was the original suspect in the shooting.

The Advocate reported Monday that Wilson and Robinson are a couple, and that Robinson allegedly encouraged him to fire the gun.

Wilson and Robinson are being held in the Williamson County Jail as Fugitives from Justice pending their extradition to Louisiana, reports the Franklin Police Department.
