NEW ORLEANS — A juvenile is dead and another was taken into custody after a shooting that wounded four people Sunday morning in the Tremé area.

According to the New Orleans Police Department, first district officers responded to the 1600 block of Iberville Street, at around 4:40, on a call of aggravated battery by shooting.

When police arrived they found the victims suffering from gunshot wounds:

  • 15-year-old male
  • 16-year-old male
  • 16-year-old male
  • Adult male

All victims were transported to University Medical Center where the 15-year-old male later died from his wounded. NOPD posted hours later to Twitter, that the other three victims have been listed in stable condition.

According to our partners at The Times-Picayune | New Orleans Advocate, a 15-year-old boy was arrested after police said he told his family about the shooting and tried to leave town.

 The article states that a relative called 911 and police went to the Hollygrove home to detain the teen. He has not been charged as of now.

The Orleans Parish Coroner's Office will release the official cause of death and the victim's name once an autopsy is done and the family is notified.
