A man was shot in the leg early Friday afternoon (Jan. 12) in the Treme neighborhood, New Orleans police said.
The shooting in Treme was the second shooting reported before 1 p.m. in New Orleans on Friday. Earlier in the day, the NOPD said a man was shot in the buttocks around 5:30 a.m. at South Claiborne Avenue and Milan Street after he heard someone say, “Give it up.”
Two shootings on Friday came hours after a 20-year-old man was fatally shot in Algiers on Thursday night. Police responded to the gun death about 8:20 p.m. in the 1700 block of Flanders.
