BATON ROUGE - Law enforcement responded to Baton Rouge's seventh shooting since the start of the month Wednesday morning.

Investigators said a 46-year-old man was found dead from a gunshot wound in the 12300 block of Lorna Avenue around 6:50 a.m.

Police said the motive for the shooting and details about the incident are not clear at this time. They asked anyone with information to call the Violent Crimes Unit at (225) 389-4869.

Six other shootings have been reported since March 1 in the city-parish. The violence spiked after a historically-calm February where no shootings were reported.
