129 Shootings In Baton Rouge This Year

Handgun

New figures show that there have been 129 shootings within Baton Rouge city limits so far this year.

Those figures, requested by a metro councilman, include all shooting incidents whether they were fatal or not.

That number compares to the 193 shootings that happened in all of 2018.

Past statistics were not available as the Baton Rouge Police Department did not begin compiling figures on non-fatal shootings until last year.
