NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - The New Orleans Police Department is investigating a quadruple shooting that happened late Wednesday night.

Police said they need the community's help to solve the case.

NOPD believes a red pick-up truck pulled up next to the victims at a red light and open fired on Bullard Avenue and I-10.

The suspects fled, and the victims drove to a different location before calling police.

Police believe one of the victims, a 22-year-old woman left the vehicle to call 911. The man, who was also 22, was seen driving at a high rate of speed in the Seabrook Subdivision. That is where officers called for EMS, who then transported the man and two children.

The 7-year-old girl and 5-year-old girl were shot in the legs, but were later released from the hospital in good condition.

NOPD said an infant was also in the car, but was not injured.

A tip into police led officers to the suspect's truck which was found burned at a location in New Orleans East. Officers are working to determine whether or not the suspects dumped the car and set it on fire.

NOPD asks anyone with information on the suspect's location or the shooting to call Third District officers.
