BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
One man is dead after a shooting at a Baton Rouge apartment complex Sunday.
It happened at 12400 Jefferson Highway at Jefferson Lake Apartments around 6:30 p.m.
The victim was identified as Ellis Banks, 41.
The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office said Banks heard a knock at his door and was shot when he opened it.
He was taken to a hospital, where he later died.
Neighbors said they didn't expect something like this so close to home.
"I've only lived here since November," said Rita Ross. "It's been pretty quiet. We've heard shots a little bit, but no one's come out. We thought they were fireworks or something."
