Copy-5 overnight shootings leave 2 dead, 4 others injured

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

It was a busy night for the Baton Rouge Police Department, as officers responded to five different shooting scenes that left two people dead.

Mayor Sharon Weston Broome released a statement on overnight violence in the city of Baton Rouge.

She says:

Again, our community experienced gun violence. There were mutiple shootings in a number of neighborhoods last night in our city. I witnessed a number of concerned citizens wondering if their family members were among the deceased. I also witnessed many spectators. We need people who witness the violence to say something. Do not be afraid to protect your own neighborhoods and families. Law enforcement officers are here to help, but they must know about these situations to get these criminals off our streets. This violence must stop... now. However, it takes all of us to make this happen.
