Baton Rouge Police Department spokesman Sgt. L'Jean McKneely tells The Advocate that the person died Monday night in a shooting at an apartment complex.

Onlookers were gathering outside the crime tape, with many yelling angrily at officers.

Baton Rouge Mayor Sharon Weston Broome issued a statement late Monday asking the community to withhold judgment until the investigation is complete.
