Baton Rouge Police are still looking into six weekend shootings.   When the bullets stopped flying, 4 people were killed, 2 were injured, and a BRPD car was hit by bullets.

The shootings started late Friday night - and ended just after midnight Monday. 

"It's the holiday weekend.  Unfortunately whenever we have a holidy weekend we see an increase in criminal activity - a lot of people choose to get out and celebrate.", says Sgt. Don Stone.

"They drink a lot which brings on arguments, and they choose to settle their arguments by shooting", he says.

Police are still following leads.   Call Crimestoppers at 344-STOP if you have any information.
