NEW ORLEANS -- A 21-year-old man was shot in the Iberville neighborhood during an illegal block party, according to the New Orleans Police Department.

The shooting happened in the 1800 block of Conti Street around 8:35 p.m.

Officers were responding to an "extremely large crowd" with loud music when they heard gunshots.

They found in the area a 21-year-old man shot to death in the area. He had gunshot wounds in his head and body. There was also a man who was shot in the neck.

Neither victim has been identified.

Police say because of the crowd disbursing after the shooting, they weren't able to determine a suspect.

If you know anything that can help investigators, call Crimestoppers at 822-1111.
