NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A man died by self-inflicted gunshot wound Sunday night (Sept. 13) in the Warehouse District, after first firing several shots at another man with whom he was arguing, New Orleans police said.

Police initially reported a homicide investigation underway after officers responded around 9:15 p.m. to a report of gunshots in the 900 block of Poeyfarre Street, where The Cotton Mill apartments are located. The NOPD said officers arrived to find a man fatally shot inside a residence, where another man was detained for questioning.

After further investigation, police determined the dead man had fired several gunshots in an attempt to kill or injure the other man, who was not struck or wounded. The gun-wielding man then died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said. The NOPD did not disclose whether the fatal shot was intentional or accidental.
