Detectives in Jefferson Parish are trying to determine if two Tuesday afternoon shootings are related.

The JPSO got a call around 1:30 p.m. about a man who had been shot in the 1600 block of Esther Street. He died on the scene.

“As our officers were collecting information here on the scene, we had a black male show up at West Jefferson General Hospital with multiple gunshot wounds,” said JPSO spokesman Col. John Fortunato. “He was temporarily treated at West Jeff, and in turn transferred to University Medical Center due to his condition. We believe there's a possibility that that same black male may have been involved in whatever incident took place here.”

Investigators said the man who died appears to be in his late teens. The one being treated at UMC is in his late 20s.
