NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A worker was injured when a gunman barged into a St. Charles Avenue Smoothie King during what is believed to be an attempted armed robbery.

When the suspect entered the store in the 1900 block of St. Charles Avenue, a worker ran out, crossed St. Charles Avenue and called police from a nearby Walgreens.

The worker, who is pregnant, was later seen with ice on her knee. She was transported to a nearby hospital as a precaution.

This incident comes shortly after a woman was shot while waiting in a line in the 2000 block of St. Charles Avenue around 1:30 a.m.
