NOPD investigates New Orleans East homicide

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - New Orleans police are investigating a Wednesday morning homicide in New Orleans East.

According to initial police reports, one man was killed in the 8700 block of Dinkins Street.

Police were called to the area right around 6:15 a.m. When they arrived they found a man with a single gunshot wound lying in the driveway.

One neighbor said he heard five gunshots. When he looked outside he saw who he describes as a young man lying in the driveway.

Neighbors tell me there was another shooting nearby just two days ago and this latest incident is unnerving.
