A Baton Rouge man is behind bars after authorities say he was driving erratically behind a victim, firing multiple shots.

The Baton Rouge Police Department responded to a shooting in the 9600 block of Plank Rd. on Saturday December 10 at 10:05 p.m.

Upon arrival, shattered glass was located in the roadway. The deputy was informed that a silver Honda Accord, following a white Chevrolet Impala, were both driving erratically and did not stop at a red light near Plank Rd. The Honda pulled up and fired approximately six to ten shots at the Impala before driving away.
