Police seeking 'heavily armed' suspect near Seneca Street
BATON ROUGE - Police say two suspects are in custody after a shooting and a brief manhunt in Baton Rouge Monday night.
The search began after police responded to reports of dozens of shots fired on Iroquois Street around 6:45 p.m Monday. Shortly afterward, police began blocking off portions of Seneca Street, Iroquois Street, and Plank Road as officers searched the area for a suspect they believe to be armed with an assault rifle.
Police, along with K-9 units, searched the area for the heavily armed suspect for a little over an hour until two suspects were taken into custody.
Police say the two suspects opened fire on a passing vehicle on Iroquois Street as a Street Crimes unit was driving by. The two then fled from police until they were eventually captured.
