One dead, multiple shot at numerous crime scenes Tuesday night
BATON ROUGE- One person was shot dead and at least three others wounded by bullets in a series of shootings late Tuesday evening.
First, Baton Rouge Police were called to two shooting scenes involving three people off Staring Lane. One person was hit on Avis Avenue. A block away, two people were shot on Leonard. At one of the scenes, police had a house roped off with crime scene tape and were moving people away from the area.
Not long after city police officers were dispatched, sheriff's deputies responded to a shooting on Dotson, off Scenic. The sheriff said one person was shot and killed and the shooter was in custody. Investigators are still trying to figure out what brought about the shooting. Sources said the person who was killed was related to the shooter.
Further details about both shootings will likely be released overnight or Wednesday morning. Watch WBRZ's 2une In at 5 a.m. and check back for updates.
