A Sunday night shooting at a gas station on the corner of Plank Road and Scenic Highway left one man with life-threatening injuries.
The man — whose age was not available — was taken to a hospital in a private vehicle after the shooting which happened around 6 p.m., said Cpl. Don Coppola Jr., a Baton Rouge police spokesman.
Coppola said the man was in critical condition,
No other details about the shooting were provided late Sunday, Coppola said.
The gas station where the shooting occurred — Stadium Chevron in the 1300 block of Scenic Highway, just north of Interstate 110 at the foot of Plank Road — has been a frequent crime scene in recent years, including at least two fatal shootings since 2002 that remain unsolved.
It is the same gas station where a St. Francisville couple was badly beaten in May for being “in the wrong neighborhood.”
Police ask anyone with information about Sunday night’s shooting to contact Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-7867.
