NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - A man was shot at in the 900 block of Pine Street on Wednesday night.

The incident occurred at around 9:43 p.m.

The two victims were coming home when they spotted a man dressed in all black kneeling in front of a dumpster across the street.

One of the pair began to chase the suspect causing him to flee the scene. The suspect then yelled ‘stop chasing me’ before firing a single shot at the one chasing him, who stopped there.

The man continued to run south on Pine Street.
