Two men were both hit in their legs by gunshots Wednesday evening on Josephine Street in the Lower Garden District, authorities said.
The men, ages 27 and 28, were standing in the 500 block of Josephine around 6:45 p.m. when they heard gunshots and began to run, but each of the men were hit in their right legs, according to initial police reports. They were later listed in stable condition, the report states.
No further details were immediately available. The incident is not yet listed on NOPD crime maps, but the 500 block of Josephine is about a block from the intersection of Jackson and Tchoupitoulas.
