A 14-year-old girl was shot in the parking lot of a movie theatre near the Mall of Louisiana on Saturday night, according to Baton Rouge police.

Sgt. Don Coppola Jr., BRPD spokesman, said a call came at 9:10 p.m. reporting a shooting in the parking lot of Dick's Sporting Goods. An investigation revealed a girl was shot in the pelvic area in the Mall of Louisiana AMC Theatre parking lot and then ran to Dick's Sporting Goods.

The girl's injuries were not life-threatening, Coppola said Sunday morning.

It's the fourth shooting in Baton Rouge in less than 24 hours.

Seven people were injured in a shooting at a Florida Boulevard night club early Saturday morning.

Three people were shot in an armed robbery on Jasper Avenue late Friday night. And one person was shot near a Tigerland bar late Friday night.

Police set up a barrier stretching from the edge of the AMC Theatre down past the sporting goods store.

Around 10 p.m. Saturday night movie-goers exiting the theatre huddled along the borders of the police tape and gawked at the law enforcement officers swarming the scene. Some of the people had cars behind the tape they could not reach before they had to head home for the night. 

Both Baton Rouge Police officers and East Baton Rouge Sheriff's deputies were working the scene. 

Coppola said the investigation remains ongoing.
