NOPD investigates multiple shootings across city

New Orleans, La. -

Police stayed busy Monday night, investigating at least five shootings that wounded up to six people.

The first happened at Liberty and St. Andrew Streets in Central City around 6:30 p.m.  NOPD says a male victim was shot to the foot.

The violence picked up in the hours to come.  A male victim was shot to the leg in the 600 block of S. Pierce St. near Baudin Street in Mid-City, roughly around 10:00 p.m.  And a male victim was shot in his shoulder around the same time at Gen. Ogden and Olive Streets in Holly Grove.

Then, around 11:00 p.m., two males were shot in the 1900 block of Pauger St. in the 7th Ward.  One was wounded in the neck, the second was shot to the leg.  A second shooting around that time, in the 2500 block of N. Conti, wounded a male victim in his leg.

We have no information on the victims' current conditions and NOPD has yet to release further details.

If you can help police find the culprits in any of these attacks, please call NOPD or Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
