BATON ROUGE- Sheriff's deputies in East Baton Rouge Parish are investigating a shooting that sent one man to the hospital. It happened Sunday evening at the BREC Park on Elvin Drive.

Investigators say a two men shot at each other after an argument earlier that day. One of the men was shot in the leg and is expected to be OK. 

Neighbors told News 2 they heard at least a dozen gunshots.

"These houses are paper-thin and it doesn't take a whole lot for a stray bullet to go in any of the houses and wound anybody's child," Pastor Gerard Robinson said.

Deputies have not released the name of the suspect and no arrests have been made.
