Double shooting leaves one dead


From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

A 6-year-old boy shot in the face last night is recovering in the hospital this morning. The shooter, according to BRPD, was his 12-year-old brother. Police said it was a horrible accident.  A shooting later on Convention Street was not an accident, though. The late night shooting in Baton Rouge killed one, injured another and witnesses said it's related to another shooting earlier in the day. Let's take a deep breath Baton Rouge. A crash on I-10 East at Essen has all lanes blocked. It is unknown when the roadway will reopen. Don't forget you can catch our 9Online webcasts three times throughout the day.
