Baton Rouge Police are looking for a suspect in connection to a shooting in North Baton Rouge that left two people injured.

Police were called out to the scene on Alliquippa Street and Dayton Street Monday night. They say one of the victims was giving the suspect a ride. When the suspect wanted to get out of the car, he and the victim exchanged words. 

According to police, the suspect allegedly shot the driver in the shoulder area when he got out of the car. The victim then drove into a ditch to get away from the suspect and accidentally backed into a woman who was crossing the road.

Officials said the victims sustained minor injuries and were taken to the hospital, but that they will be okay. 

Police do not know who the suspect was in the shooting. 

Anyone with information about the incident or the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-7867.
