NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — The New Orleans Police Department reported a double shooting that resulted in at least one homicide at the intersection of Chef Menteur Highway and Providence Place on Wednesday.

The woman was transported to a hospital where she is currently listed in critical condition.
In the surveillance footage provided by the NOPD, the suspect can be seen pulling alongside the victims’ vehicle and firing repeatedly into the car. The video at the top of the page has been clipped just prior to the woman crawling out of the driver-side door to escape while being fired upon.
