A man was critically wounded after being shot several times Tuesday night on Seventh Street in Central City, New Orleans police said.

The victim told police he drove up to a man in a wheelchair to ask him a question around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 1800 block of Seventh Street (near Baronne Street, just a few blocks from the intersection of St. Charles and Louisiana), according to the initial NOPD report. The man in the wheelchair began shooting at him, hitting him in the shoulder, chest and back, so the victim drove himself to nearby Touro Infirmary, the report states.

The victim was listed in critical condition afterward, according to initial dispatches.

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