The East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office is responding to a shooting that happened in the Gardere area of the 1000 block of Villa Dr. around 8pm on April 2, 2022.
The shooting victim appears to have been transported to an area hospital.
Officials say a possible suspect is barricaded inside a home refusing to come out. When deputies asked for the person to come out, officials said a female did walk out but it’s unclear if she’s involved in the shooting or not or if anyone else is still in the home.
