I'm from Germany and I just began studying at a college in Seattle. I have a question for you, if there was a robbery and a person got shot would that classify as aggravated robbery or even attempted murder?
I have another question: The victim died from the gun shot and when the offender was escaping the scene he hit another person. Would you charge him with both first degree murder and a hit and run or would you only charge him with first degree murder?
In Louisiana, the first charge would be a first degree murder with the robbery being the aggravating circumstance. The "hit and run" could actually be a second degree murder as an unintentional killing during the crime.
