NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

New Orleans police are investigating a shooting that injured four people in New Orleans’ Seventh Ward early Sunday.

It happened near the intersection of Elysian Fields Avenue and North Claiborne Avenue. Officials say around 1:45 a.m. officers responded to a call of someone shot in the area. Upon arrival, they discovered one male and three females suffering gunshot wounds. All of the victims were transported to the hospital by EMS. A fourth female was transported by EMS for an apparent gunshot wound, but it was later discovered that she was not shot. 

The victims’ conditions are unknown at this time. Names have not been released as the investigation is ongoing.

Police say that 31-year-old Lionel Cheneau identified by the male victim and a witness as the person responsible for the shooting. During their investigation, detectives learned that Cheneau and the male victim got into an argument inside of a bar near the location. Both men walked outside the bar before Cheneau walked over to his vehicle, pulled out a gun and began firing at the male victim and a group of women. 

According to police Cheneau reportedly flagged down a nearby state trooper and told the trooper that he had been shot. He was then taken to the NOPD Fifth District Station where he admitted to his involvement in the shootings.

Cheneau was booked with attempted murder and three counts of aggravated battery by shooting.   

Anyone with any additional information about this incident is urged to call Fifth District detectives at 504-658-6050, or  CRIMESTOPPERS at 504-822-1111.
