NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Louisiana State Police and New Orleans Police Department investigators are on the scene of a shooting here on Interstate 10, just past the Broad St. overpass and right before the jail.

A black Nissan crashed into the fence along the side of the interstate.

Police say one person was shot.

A woman claiming to be the victim’s mother said her son was shot while driving and that’s what caused him to crash.

The incident happened Monday around 3:15 p.m., just before commuters started to head home. Drivers should expect delays in the area.

Nearly all of the westbound lanes coming from the CBD and the bridge are gummed up after investigators blocked off lanes.
