METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

One of the victims of a double shooting in Metairie is dead.

22-year-old Darren Dedaux died Saturday night from wounds he received outside of Mojo's bar on Cleary Avenue Wednesday morning.

Deputies first received reports of a shooting around 2:10 a.m. Feb. 18 in the 2900 block of Cleary Avenue. Officers arriving on the scene say they found a large crowd in the parking lot of Mojo's Bar.

Spent casings littered the scene, according to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office. A nearby business, two apartments and three vehicles were hit by gunfire.

Nearly 20 minutes later, officers say Dedaux arrived at East Jefferson Hospital with a gunshot wound to the chest. He was taken to University Hospital, where he remains in critical condition.

Around 4:20 a.m., police say a second victim arrived at Ochsner Hospital with a gunshot wound to the hand. He has been identified as 24-year-old man. Officers say they do not know if he was the intended victim or if he was caught in the crossfire.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact the Jefferson Parish Investigations Bureau at (504) 364-5300 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
