NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A triple shooting on Tulane Avenue early Sunday (Sept. 19) left one man dead, another badly injured and a woman wounded, New Orleans police said.

The NOPD said officers responded to reports of gunfire in the 3900 block of Tulane Avenue at about 12:10 a.m. They arrived to find three shooting victims: Two men who each had been shot multiple times, and a woman who sustained a gunshot wound to her buttocks. New Orleans EMS took all three to a hospital, where one of the men was pronounced dead.

Neither the identity nor age of the dead man was disclosed. Nor were the conditions of the two other victims, a 32-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman. The NOPD said the gunman “pulled up and opened fire” on a crowd of people and might have been shot himself, but that no further details on the incident were available.

Police ask that anyone with information on the shooting call NOPD homicide detectives at (504) 658-5300 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
