One injured in shooting near Government Street

One person was injured in a shooting in Baton Rouge Tuesday morning.

The shooting happened after 9 a.m. on Apartment Court Dr. near Government Street at the Goodwood Place Apartments.

Nearly 15-20 shots were fired around the apartment complex which is why police responded.

A man was shot in the foot and transported to a hospital with minor injuries.

Officials say a suspect was seen fleeing the area.

A nearby school, Our Lady of Mercy School was locked down out of precaution, but that was lifted shortly later.

As of now, police have no suspects or motives.
