1 dead, 2 injured in three weekend shootings in Algiers

Shortly before 5 p.m. police investigated a shooting that left a man dead in the 3400 block of Garden Oaks Drive in Algiers.

NEW ORLEANS — One person was killed and a second person suffered several gunshot wounds in a pair of shootings late Saturday afternoon into the evening, according to the NOPD.

Shortly before 5 p.m. police investigated a shooting that left a man dead in the 3400 block of Garden Oaks Drive in Algiers.

Police said officers in that area heard gunshots and went towards the sound and then were directed by people near the scene. The victim, a 32-year-old man whose identity is being withheld at the moment, was found dead inside of his apartment from a single gunshot. Two people were detained by police in that case.

About a half an hour later, police responded to a report of a shooting in the 7000 block of Lawrence Road. That victim was shot multiple times and taken to the hospital. His condition wasn’t immediately known.

Then, at around 1:15 Sunday morning, police responded to a call of a man suffering from two gunshot wounds in the 2200 block of Cobblestone Lane. EMS took him to the hospital and there is no word yet on his condition.

Anyone with information on either crime is asked to call Crimestoppers at 822-1111.
