Mass shooting overnight in BR club leaves 12 people shot

Upwards of a dozen people were shot overnight in a mass shooting in Baton Rouge at Club Dior Bar & Lounge, according to multiple sources.

The shooting happened on Bennington Ave. at Club Dior Bar & Lounge around 1:30am on Sunday, Jan. 22nd.


It’s unclear what led up to the shooting but at least five people were transported to area hospitals by an ambulance. However, multiple other people showed up to various Baton Rouge hospitals on their own in private vehicles. In total, 12 people were injured by gunfire.

Sources added the DJ at the club was also shot, possibly a bullet to the spine. A woman took a bullet to the chest. That’s just some of the victims’ and locations of their injuries to indicate the level of current conditions.

Although there were multiple victims in critical condition, like the DJ and woman shot, thankfully, no one has died as of early Sunday morning. That can change as the day progresses.

The initial call was reported as multiple shooting victims inside of Club Dior Bar & Lounge.

Baton Rouge Police is leading the investigation into the shooting. As of now, no arrests have been made and a motive of what led to the shooting in unclear.

When more details are available, the article will be updated.
