That fatal shooting followed two other incidents of gun violence elsewhere in the city.

The victim’s age and condition were not disclosed. Police said he was wounded and drove himself to a hospital after an unknown suspect opened fire on his vehicle.
Two other people -- a man and a woman -- were shot about 90 minutes later, at 12:19 a.m., in the 1500 block of Aviators Street in Gentilly. Police again provided no details on the victims’ ages, conditions or the circumstances of their shooting, saying only that they took themselves to a hospital to seek treatment for their injuries.
Anyone with information on the fatal shooting in the Marigny is asked to contact NOPD homicide detective John Bakula at (504) 658-5300 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
