    BATON ROUGE - An altercation between family members led to a shooting in Baton Rouge Tuesday night.

    Investigators say 53-year-old Jeremy Gray was shot and killed by his stepbrother on Dotson Ave. off Scenic Hwy. just after 10:00 p.m. last night. They haven't determined what caused the shooting, but believe it could have happened in self-defense. The alleged shooter called 911 and remained on-scene until deputies arrived.
