The Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office is investigating three separate shootings that left four people wounded Thursday (Jan. 11), including a double shooting and the injury of 16-year-old boy.
No arrests have been made in the shootings, which were reported in Harvey and Marrero, according to Glen T. Boyd, spokesman for the department.
The first incident about 5:49 p.m. in the 1600 block of Majestic Place in Marrero, according to the Sheriff’s Office. The 16-year-old victim suffered a gunshot wound and was in stable condition.
Authorities suspect it was a self-inflicted injury. But the victim is not cooperating with investigators, Boyd said.
About 8:45 p.m., 911 dispatchers received another call reporting man wounded, this time in the 4000 block of Teton Street in Marrero. The victim, 20, told deputies he was walking when a person he didn’t know approached and shot him in the chest, Boyd said.
The man was taken to a local hospital where he was in critical condition. But the victim is expected to survive his injuries.
Deputies responded to a double shooting about 10:30 p.m. in the 3800 block of Clover Lane in Harvey, Boyd said. The male victims, both 26, reported they were talking on Clover when someone shot them.
One man suffered a gunshot wound to his leg. The other was shot in the leg and chest. Both were in stable condition, Boyd said.
Sheriff’s Office detectives have no motives nor suspects in the shootings. The cases are still under investigation.
