Mayor of Baton Rouge Press Release Walmart Shooting in their city

BATON ROUGE, LA — August 6, 2019 — Today, a shooting at a Walmart on Burbank Drive in the southern part of the City-Parish caused a brief panic for shoppers still on edge after two mass shootings in Texas and Ohio this weekend. It was a dispute between two people that escalated into careless violence. The incident is still under investigation. An innocent bystander did go to the hospital with a gunshot wound, but no other injuries have been reported.
East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Deputies, Baton Rouge Police, Louisiana State Police, St. George Firefighters and EMS responded immediately and secured the scene. The incident is alarming, but we will not let fear control our community.
