BATON ROUGE - A teen was taken to a hospital Friday after a reported shooting in a neighborhood near Staring Lane.

The 15-year-old was reportedly shot sometime before 1:30 p.m. on Avis Avenue. Authorities said the victim was taken to an area children's hospital.

Neighbors were hesitant to speak with reporters in fear of retaliation, but a neighbor told WBRZ she learned about the shooting after her son called her and said, "the gunfire was so loud, it woke him up". 

Sources say the gunfire erupted between teenagers in the neighborhood. 

Police say the 15-year-old is expected to recover from his injuries.
