Man injured after shooter opens fire on house, car overnight
BATON ROUGE - A man was hurt in a drive-by shooting late Friday when police said an unknown person opened fire on a house and car from a separate passing car.
The gunfire erupted outside a house in the 3000 block of Crestwood around 10 p.m. Police described a barrage of gunfire fired toward the home and a vehicle in front of the residence.
A man sitting in the car out front of the house was hit by the gunfire and was hurt, police said. Their injuries were described as non-life threatening.
A WBRZ news crew on the scene recorded video of a car haphazardly parked in the front yard of the home, rolled off and away from the edge of the street.
Police said there were no suspects. A motive for the shooting was not available.
The shooting happened on the back street of a usually quiet neighborhood off Cedarcrest near its intersection with Coursey.
