“Multiple victims” were shot and at least one killed in the 5100 block of St. Claude Avenue Tuesday night (Feb. 13), New Orleans police reported.
Initial reports show possibly five victims suffering from gunshot wounds, police said.
One victim died on scene from their injuries. No further information was immediately available.
A man looking onto the scene from the neutral ground said he lives about 6 blocks away and was inside his home when he heard many shots fired.
“It sounded like they had a war going on,” he said.
“It’s crazy this is crazy. This is foolish, what are they killing each other for? This is just foolish for our people to be killing each other. For what?”
The man declined to give his name, but said he has lived in the neighborhood for 62 years and said the store where the shooting took place is often a rough place. “This isn’t new.”
