NEW ORLEANS -- New Orleans police are investigating a drive-by shooting at a Monday night pick-up football game in Algiers.

The victim, who hasn't been identified, was grazed in the head by a stray bullet, Robertson said. He was last listed in good condition and was alert and talking on the scene.

Police are still working to determine a suspect and a motive.
