Shots fired into home near O'Neal Lane overnight; 2 people hurt
BATON ROUGE - Two people were shot at a suburban Baton Rouge home early Thursday morning.
The shooting was first reported around 3 a.m. on Firewood Drive off O'Neal Lane. The Baton Rouge Police Department said the shots were fired from outside the house.
One man and one woman sustained injuries. They are expected to be okay. Police believe the shooting was targeted and are still looking for the shooter.
Janie Roberts lives near the house that got shot. She is troubled at what the future could hold for her neighborhood.
"We're concerned. We've been blessed. Other neighborhoods have had more experiences that we have had, but it seems we're afraid that our turn is next," Roberts said Thursday.
Roberts hopes the police can figure out who is responsible as quickly as possible. But will stay uneasy until the question of why this happened is answered.
"Unknown. It's the unknown that's scary."
