NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Police are looking for two men in connection with the double shooting Thursday that injured a 2-year-old girl and her father in Hollygrove.

Police say Bernard Baker, 22, and Earl Green, 26, each face two counts of attempted first-degree murder.

The victims were riding in a car in the 8800 block of Earhart at about 3:30 p.m. when an SUV pulled up beside them and someone inside opened fire. The father was hit in his side; the girl was struck in the arm. Both were in stable condition after the shooting and expected to recover.

Police are asking anyone with information on the whereabouts of Baker and Green to call Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111. Callers may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward for tips that lead to an arrest and indictment.
