According to WAFB, the incident occurred on Azalea Park Avenue near the intersection of Old Hammond Highway and South Flannery Road around 1:30 a.m. East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies say 22-year-old Greg Frazier walked up to a random stranger and asked for a lighter.

While the man reached into his pocket, Frazier used this opportunity to draw a gun and demand his money and possessions. That’s when the victim pulled out his concealed carry handgun and opened fire on Frazier, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
