NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Witnesses say a man opened fire during a fight at a party in eastern New Orleans just before midnight on Mardi Gras.

According to NOPD investigators, one victim arrived at a hospital with gunshot wounds to his chest, buttocks, both thighs and his scrotum.

NOPD officers found the other 18-year-old victim on the ground outside the house on Lakeview Court. He'd been shot in the temple and foot.

Witnesses told police the fight started as an argument, then a short, black male in a black jacket started shooting.

Investigators are asking the public for help identifying and locating the suspect who is wanted for aggravated battery by shooting. Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 822-1111. You do not have to give your name or testify to be eligible for the cash reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the person responsible.
