Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — Baton Rouge Police were investigating an incident at Don Carter's All Star Lanes when two men were shot near the Neighborhood Wal-Mart on Airline Highway.
Police say the altercation at the bowling alley caused people to start running. At that point, from the bushes close to the Wal-Mart, shots were fired towards the oncoming crowd. The only thing people saw was the muzzle blast from the gun.
Two men were hit, one was grazed on the side of his face, and the other was injured with a bullet to his upper right hand shoulder. Both wounds were non-lethal.
This shooting is still under investigation. If you have any information, call the Baton Rouge Police Department or Crime Stoppers at 344-STOP (7867).
