A woman was critically injured in a shooting early Monday on Seventh Street, police said. Meanwhile, two men have been arrested on charges from a shooting from a week earlier on St. Andrew Street.

In Monday morning’s case, the 31-year-old victim was hit several times by gunfire in the 1900 block of Seventh Street around 1:45 a.m., according to initial reports. She was hospitalized in critical condition, but no further details were immediately available.

On Friday, investigators from the NOPD Sixth District arrested two men from a shooting Nov. 26 in the 2300 block of St. Andrew, said Commander Bob Bardy. In that case, a 21-year-old man was hit in the thigh and a 22-year-old woman was hit in the buttock by gunfire from a passing vehicle, police said at the time, and 18-year-old Lionel Allen and 21-year-old Jacobi Boyd have each been charged with aggravated battery.
