NEW ORLEANS – The NOPD is investigating a pair of shooting incidents in Algiers that left three people with gunshot wounds and a woman and a child injured.

Both shootings occurred within a five hour period.

In the first incident, officers say were called to Nunez Street around 4 a.m., where they found a man who had been shot in the back.
