BATON ROUGE, La. (WVLA)- Multiple guns were confiscated by the Baton Rouge Police Department earlier this week during the filming of a rap video.

The nature of the seizure is something out of a movie.

Officers arrived at the scene to find “several individuals in the 3100 block of Pampas St. waiving guns in the middle of the street.”

Officers at the scene observed people with assault rifles.

Upon the arrival of BPRD, the individuals attempted to leave the scene.

“Officers detained at least 15 subjects, seized 15 guns (3 reported stolen) and a small amount of narcotics during their investigation,” police said.
