BATON ROUGE, LA (WGMB) There have been over seventy shootings in Baton Rouge since the start of the summer.
Crime isn't commonplace, but a few incidents here and there are usually chalked up as freak occurences.
But since May, there have been lots of shootings that were either fatal or near-fatal.
Most of the shots fired have been around the downtown area close to the garden district. but these shootings are starting to migrate. Last week there were at least three shootings around the Scotlandville area.
