NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Three people were shot in New Orleans during the overnight hours, including two in Algiers, where a gun buy-back program was held about 12 hours earlier, police said Sunday (Aug. 14). A fourth shooting victim was reported later Sunday morning.

The four shootings occurred in a span of nine hours Saturday night into Sunday morning. Police have not said whether any of the gun violence appeared to be connected, nor were any arrests announced in relation to the incidents.

The first shooting occurred Saturday around 10:50 p.m., in the 3300 block of Garden Oaks Drive. New Orleans EMS responded to find a man inside a vehicle who had been shot multiple times. He was taken to a hospital for treatment, but police offered no information about his condition.

About an hour later at 11:48 p.m., another man was shot on the other side of the river, at the intersection of South Claiborne Avenue and Earhart Boulevard, the same corner where New Orleans EMS and the Orleans Parish Coroner’s office is located. Police said this victim was shot multiple times by a gunman who opened fire from a vehicle, and ran to EMS headquarters for help. The victim was taken for hospital treatment, but police did not disclose his condition or the circumstances of the shooting.

Then back in Algiers, a woman was shot multiple times in the 1200 block of Elmira Avenue during what police described as an “altercation” around 3:12 a.m. She also was taken for hospital treatment, but police provided no information on her condition. This shooting was less than three miles from the scene of the Garden Oaks shooting.

The fourth victim was a man shot multiple times at the intersection of Louisiana and Loyola avenues at 7:57 a.m. Police said he was taken by private vehicle for hospital treatment, and his condition also was not disclosed.
