NOPD Detectives Called To Two Shooting Scenes

New Orleans police say a man was shot and killed at about 8:00 Wednesday night in the 4900 block of Painters Street in Gentilly.

Police say the man was able to give them a general description of his attacker as well as the car he may have been driving before he died.

About an hour before the murder in Gentilly, police were called to a double shooting in the 2200 block of Saint Andrew Street in Central City.

Police say one man was shot in the chest and, at last word, was in critical condition at an area hospital.

They also say a seven-year-old girl was hit  by a stray bullet at the Central City scene.  She was taken to the hospital and listed in good condition.

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
