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.
