BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Three people died in a string of deadly shootings that occurred within about seven hours in Louisiana’s capital of Baton Rouge.

Police say a 20-year-old man was shot to death around 3 p.m. Sunday in a car wash parking lot near an elementary school. The Advocate reports a 40-year-old man was later arrested in the slaying of a man identified as Arvion Finley.

Another man was killed in a separate shooting a few hours later. And police say 45-year-old Marcus Clay died in a third shooting about 10 p.m. that resulted from an altercation.

Police say there’s no indication that any of the shootings are related.

Baton Rouge Police Chief Murphy Paul says the violence shows people have no fear of consequences.
