New Orleans Shooting Leaves Three Dead, Seven Wounded

Several dead injured in New Orleans shooting

The New Orleans Police Department is investigating after three people were killed and seven others were injured during a shooting Saturday night.

"A lot of people were here tonight", he said. The other four arrived at the hospital by private means.

New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell said in a statement that authorities will focus "every resource necessary to ending this horror and seeing justice done".

"Through investigation, detectives determined that two unknown armed subjects believed to be wearing hooded sweatshirts allegedly approached a group of people standing outside of a business and opened fire, striking 10 of the individuals", New Orleans police said in a statement.

He said police do not know whether it was gang-related. The two then ran from the scene on foot toward Martin Luther King Jr. Shooting 10 people? Killing three?


"This was a large crowd and we know that people saw something, heard something", Harrison said.

In the 2800 block of Louisiana Avenue, crime tape was in place at a house and officers stood on the front porch.

Harrison said one underwent surgery and was in critical condition. Those offering information will be kept anonymous and do not have to testify in court to receive reward, according to Crimestoppers. He encouraged the use of Crimestoppers at 822-1111 for those wishing to give anonymous tips.

Investigators work at the site of the shooting late Saturday. I speak for everyone in our City when I say we are disgusted, we are infuriated, & we have had more than enough.

In October 2011, the younger brother of John Matthews, who owned Jazz Daiquiris at the time, was gunned down three days after Hankton was given a life sentence in the 2008 shooting.
