NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — The NOPD began working a standoff at a home in New Orleans East on Wednesday.

Authorities say the suspect shot at officers and then barricaded himself inside a home in the 7700 block of Alabama Street.

No officers were injured in the shooting, however, a female victim was later taken to the hospital with a non-gunshot related injury.

Around 2 p.m., a SWAT roll was declared at the location, prompting several road closures. NOPD has closed off the following intersections to traffic:

  • Downman Road at Morrison Road
  • Downman Road at Hayne Boulevard
  • West Laverne Street at Wales Street

NOPD asks citizens to avoid the area until the scene is secure.
