BRPD investigating deadly shooting off Highland

BATON ROUGE — Multiple shots rang out and Jaylan Stanton, 30, died from his injuries.

The shooting happened just before 9pm in the 200 block of West Johnson St. on July 7. That’s off of Highland Rd. and less than half a mile away from BRPD’s second district.

Sources tell Unfiltered with Kiran more than half a dozen shots were fired. That’s what people called in to report.

When officers showed up, they found Stanton suffering from multiple gunshot wounds and died on the scene. No word yet on what led up to the shooting.

This homicide comes nearly four hours after another shooting in Baton Rouge less than two miles away.

Officers responded to Smith St. around 5pm and found several shell casings about half a mile away on Julia St. One person was shot multiple times and transported in stable condition.

It’s unclear at this time if the two shootings are connected or not.
