Two men were killed after a fire broke out when a group gathered in a Louisiana neighborhood to shoot a rap music video, according to the authorities.
Baton Rouge police were called to the scene, where they found Dandry Mills, 25, and Landon Johnson, 31, with gunshot wounds, police spokesman Sgt. L’Jean McKneely said .
The victims were taken to a hospital where they later died.
Police said a group was filming a rap video clip in Baton Rouge when the shooting occurred. The neighbors said that more than a dozen people gathered on their street, but the group dispersed before the police arrived, according to the newspaper, The Advocate.
“The sad thing is that no one is left in the scene,” the newspaper quoted McKinley as saying. “Zero witnesses.”
The police did not say whether the two victims were involved in making the music video.
The authorities are continuing to investigate.
