NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A man and woman were injured in a double shooting on Marigny Street early Saturday morning (June 3), New Orleans police said.

The victims were reported shot at 12:21 a.m. in the 1100 block of Marigny Street, in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood. The NOPD initially reported the double shooting was in the 2200 block of St. Claude Avenue, before revising its scene hours later to a location a half-mile away.

The NOPD said an unknown man was arguing with the male victim, a man who turned 35 on Saturday. The suspect walked away, but then turned around and opened fire into a crowd near a taco stand, police said, striking the man in the neck and stomach, and hitting a woman in her right ankle.

The NOPD did not disclose the victims’ conditions or the woman’s age. Police said only that the woman was taken for hospital treatment by New Orleans EMS, while the man arrived at a hospital by private vehicle.

Anyone with information on the double shooting is asked to contact the NOPD at (504) 821-2222 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
