Violence in Baton Rouge raises safety concerns

Tuesday, July 5, 2011 - 2:54pm

BATON ROUGE, La (FOX44) - A shooting has left some in already dangerous parts of the city more shaken up.

Many people we spoke with say the violence has been out of control for years.

They add having three people that tried to kill a police officer on the streets, just makes an already dangerous place more tough to call home.
According to the EBR coroner's office, there have been 43 murders so far this year.

That's compared to 49 this same time last year.

People we spoke with say even though the numbers are down, Baton Rouge is still too dangerous.
