Officers investigating homicide outside Triple S

Baton Rouge Police Officers are investigating a deadly shooting that happened outside the Triple S Food Mart.

It happened around 8:30pm on Jan. 4th on N. Foster Dr.

As of now, it appears officers responded to a man shot multiple times outside the store. By the time officials arrived, the man had died.

Just before the Triple S shooting, officers were on two separate shooting scenes that may be connected.

Then around 4pm on California St., there were about 25 rounds fired at a vehicle. A person in the car was injured when he took a bullet to his side. Plus, officers found rifle rounds on the scene as well.
