Baton Rouge police were investigating a second fatal shooting in the capital city Friday night — the 101st for Louisiana's capital city — just hours after a separate fatal shooting claimed a man's life in a different part of town.
A male victim was shot about 6 p.m. in the 2400 block of Georgia Street, near East Buchanan Street, police spokesman Sgt. Don Coppola said.
Preliminary information shows the shooting victim is a male, Coppola said.
A man was fatally shot earlier Friday on Plank Road.
More information to come.
