A man was shot and killed Friday afternoon on N. Foster Drive, marking the 83rd homicide in 2020.
That means Baton Rouge has tied 2019's total death count — with almost three months left in the year.
The shooting took place in the 4100 block of N. Foster Drive around 4:30 p.m., according to BRPD spokesperson Sgt. Don Coppola Jr. A man was taken to a local hospital, where he later died, he said.
The victim had not yet been identified Friday night.
This is a developing story.
