BATON ROUGE - Amid a recent string of shootings in the capital area, gun violence continued to cause injuries Monday night. 

Shortly before a shooting on Airline Highway seriously wounded one person, a separate incident in a neighborhood off Florida Boulevard resulted in a second person's injury. 

First responders were called to the 12500 block of Shay Avenue regarding a shooting that left one person with non-life-threatening injuries on Monday night, officials say.
