The West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office responded to the Dollar General on La. 1 shortly after 10 p.m. Responding officers said a man had been shot and stumbled into the store where he collapsed.

A WBRZ photographer on the scene captured video of numerous investigators and emergency responders on the scene.

The unidentified victim's condition was unknown as of this post.

Deputies were not ready to release specifics, yet, but a WBRZ viewer said she heard a gunshot in the area and then saw commotion at the store.  The woman emailed a video of a man being removed from the store on a stretcher and taken away via ambulance. 

More is expected to be released overnight. Check back for updates.
