Two Baton Rouge teenagers were shot Saturday afternoon after an argument involving several teens escalated, leading to a fight and gunfire in the 7900 block of Scenic Highway, according to Baton Rouge Police spokesman Cpl. L’Jean McKneely.
An 18-year-old was shot in the right thigh and a 16-year-old was grazed in the head by a bullet after at least one person pulled out a gun and began shooting during the fight, McKneely said.
The two wounded teenagers, who were not identified, were taken to a hospital and were later released, McKneely said.
No arrests have been made in the shooting, McKneely said, though the incident remains under investigation.
