A man was shot Tuesday afternoon on Delachaise Street in the Milan neighborhood, just a block off of what police refer to as the “Louisiana corridor” of frequent violence, authorities said.

Shots were reported near South Liberty and Amelia around 1:30 p.m., and while officers were there, a local hospital notified police that a private vehicle had just brough a man in with three gunshot wounds to the chest, according to Officer Hilal Williams, a NOPD spokesman. Investigators later determined that the shooting had taken place at South Liberty and Delachaise, Williams said.

Anyone with information is urged to call CrimeStoppers at 822-1111.
