NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A 34-year-old woman was killed and a 32-year-old man wounded Saturday night (April 30) in a double shooting in the Bywater neighborhood, New Orleans police said.

The victims, whose identities have not been disclosed, are believed to have been shot either inside or near the abandoned Naval Support Activity base at 4400 Dauphine Street and the foot of Poland Avenue. The blighted facility has been City of New Orleans property since 2013.
