NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — Gunfire continues in New Orleans over the weekend with a pair of seemingly unrelated shootings in New Orleans East on Sunday, the first of which wounded four victims – fatally wounding one of them.
The NOPD’s Seventh District reported both shootings at 6:46 p.m., just 40 minutes after a woman was shot in Treme and hours after five were shot on Bourbon Street for the second weekend in a row.
The first incident occurred in the 7700 block of Shubert Street. An initial report showed four victims, two female and two male, suffering from gunshot wounds, all of which were taken to the hospital. In a follow-up report from the NOPD, one of the male victims has died. The other three are still being treated medically.
In the second incident, the NOPD reports a female victim as result from a shooting at the intersection of Saigon and Henri drives in the Village De L’est area of New Orleans East. That victim has also been taken to the hospital for medical treatment.
No further information is available at this time regarding both incidents.
