New Orleans, La. - A teenager is in police custody for the shooting deaths of a 5 year-old girl and a 33 year-old woman Tuesday evening.

At an afternoon press conference, Chief Ronal Serpas said 18 year-old Leo Riles turned himself into police Tuesday night.

Serpas said Riles opened fire around 5:45pm at a birthday party in the 1200 block of Simon Bolivar.

Five people were shot including a 10 year-old boy whom the party was for.

A 19 year-old male and 25 year-old male were also shot. Serpas said those victims are not cooperating with police and he believes those men were the targets.

Leo Riles has been booked with two counts of first degree murder.

Serpas said detectives are also searching for two additional suspects wanted for the shootings. Police are asking for the public's help in identifying those suspects.
