A woman was injured in a shooting on St. Charles Avenue and a man was shot on Danneel Street in separate incidents about 20 minutes apart overnight, New Orleans police said Sunday morning.

The first shooting was reported at 11:50 p.m. Saturday (June 21) on St. Charles Avenue near Erato Street, where a woman was struck in the hip by gunfire, according to NOPD Officer Garry Flot, a departmental spokesman.

At 12:12 a.m. Sunday (June 22), another shooting was reported on Danneel Street, where a man was shot in the abdomen and taken to the hospital in unknown condition, Flot said. The shooting was originally reported in the 2700 block of Danneel (near Washington Avenue), but crime maps released Sunday morning placed it in the 2500 block of Danneel (near Second Street).

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

    First of all violence is NEVER the way to deal
    with issues. But let me put this out there
    AMERICA!, Ive been telling everyone in the
    nation through talk radio media that CRIME
    is not one neighborhoods problem like it or
    not! , because if we dont tackle it non-stop
    in one area eventually it BLEEDS throughout
    thr cities so now every damn body is getting
    robbed & killed because “everyone” ignored
    it so long because it wasnt in “your” community!
    Now everybodys gettin’ screwed!!
