BATON ROUGE - Sheriff's deputies said they're continuing to investigate a deadly shooting that happened early Wednesday morning in East Baton Rouge Parish.

A department spokesperson said one person died and another person was injured in the shooting, which happened around 5 a.m. at 9143 Ridge Pecan Drive.

Investigators said they're questioning the person who was injured about the circumstances surrounding the shooting, but had little information to release by noon.

Neighbors living in the area told News 2 they're uneasy after the killing.

"It was really scary," said Kathleen Abernathy. "I was in the bed and it could've been my apartment."

News 2's Troy Gaulden will have more on the investigation tonight starting at 4 p.m.
