At least two people were killed and two others wounded in a drive-by shooting near the Mall of Louisiana on Bluebonnet Boulevard in Louisiana on Friday.
The Baton Rouge Police Department said the shooting was “highly-planned” and “targeted.”
A video recorded at the scene moments after the shooting included a man crying “I need some help” and a witness is heard saying “It was a white vehicle” and “It looked like a Mercedes.”
Another vehicle, believed to have been driven by the suspects, was still at the scene, too. Police believe a third car was used to haul the shooter or shooters away.
Police blamed the shootings on rival “groups,” preferring not to call them gangs because the groups seem to be less-formally organized.
Sgt. L’Jean McKneely with BRPD said the shooter pulled next to the victims’ car, opened fire, and then got into a separate getaway vehicle. The number of suspects involved in the shooting was not known and no arrests were made as of Friday.
