A Baton Rouge man has died in the hospital after someone shot him Saturday night.

Police found 21-year-old Travis Polk on Mission Street sitting in a lawn chair under his carport. He was shot multiple times in the chest. Polk later died at a local hospital.

No one saw the shooting, but neighbors did hear it.

"And I kept looking around. I went through all my windows and looked. And I saw nothing,” said neighbor Leroy Young. “Then eventually I came back to the front of the window and I looked again and I saw about 11 or 12 police cars coming up. That's when I turned my attention to the police and found out what you all know."
