Earlier Saturday, around 2 a.m. a man was also shot and injured while driving on I-10 in New Orleans East, NOPD officials said. Further details around that incident are still unknown.
Saturday night, a man was shot in the hand during an alleged argument about rent payment with his sister's husband, police said.
All four shootings are under investigation, police said.
