BATON ROUGE - A man was hurt in a drive-by shooting late Friday when police said an unknown person opened fire on a house and car from a separate passing car.

The gunfire erupted outside a house in the 3000 block of Crestwood around 10 p.m.  Police described a barrage of gunfire fired toward the home and a vehicle in front of the residence.

A man sitting in the car out front of the house was hit by the gunfire and was hurt, police said.  Their injuries were described as non-life threatening.

A WBRZ news crew on the scene recorded video of a car haphazardly parked in the front yard of the home, rolled off and away from the edge of the street.

Police said there were no suspects.  A motive for the shooting was not available. 

The shooting happened on the back street of a usually quiet neighborhood off Cedarcrest near its intersection with Coursey.
