A man was killed and another person was seriously injured in shooting Saturday night on Gus Young Avenue, according to Baton Rouge Police.

The shooting happened around 8 p.m. in the 4800 block of Gus Young Avenue, said to Baton Rouge police spokesman Sgt. Don Coppola Jr. 

Jerome Kinchen, 34, of Baton Rouge died at the scene from gunshot injuries, police said. A 22-year-old was also struck by gunfire and was being treated at a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Authorities made no immediate arrests and were continuing to investigate the shooting on Sunday.

The deadly incident capped off an especially violent Saturday evening in Baton Rouge.

The shootings did not appear to be connected, Coppola said.
