At Least 12 Injured in Louisiana Nightclub Shooting!

Louisiana police said Sunday that 12 people were hurt in a shooting at a nightclub in Baton Rouge. Police say that one person who was injured is in terrible shape. No one has been caught, but police think the attack early in the morning was “targeted.”

“This was not a random act of violence, based on the preliminary investigating efforts,” Baton Rouge Police Chief Murphy Paul said at a news conference Sunday afternoon. “We believe that this was a targeted event, where someone was specifically targeted, and others were injured in that process.”

When shots were fired around 1:30 a.m., three Baton Rouge police officers were nearby and went to the Dior Bar & Lounge. They helped the person stay alive until emergency medical technicians got there. “We believe their immediate response prevented further injuries,” Paul said.

Even though police have some leads, Paul urged anyone else with information about the shooting to come forward. “There is someone who knows something—do the right thing.” “You can save the next incident because it is obvious that this person has total disregard for life,” Paul said.

The police didn’t say how many people shot were the intended targets. Paul wouldn’t know how many shooters were out there. Paul said about the ongoing investigation, “I do understand the interest and everybody wanting information, but remember… we have to get this right.”

“And sometimes, getting it right means I can’t give information right now.” Last week, the mayor of Baton Rouge, Sharon Weston Broome, met with the mayors of other major U.S. cities in Washington, D.C., to talk about crime.

She called the shooting “a senseless act of violence that will not go unchecked.” Broome tweeted, “We will not stop our work until everyone feels safe and individuals no longer turn to guns to resolve their differences,”

Even though there were fewer homicides in Baton Rouge last year than in 2021, gun violence has been a problem in Louisiana’s capital city. In October, nine people were hurt when shots were fired early in the morning near the campus of Southern University in Baton Rouge.
