New Orleans police are investigating the Tuesday-afternoon shooting of two men near the prominent Central City intersection of Washington Avenue and LaSalle Street, authorities said.
The two adults were shot multiple times near the intersection shortly after 12:30 p.m., said NOPD Officer Garry Flot, a departmental spokesman. Information on their conditions was not immediately available, Flot said.
The intersection is the location of A.L. Davis Park and a central point for a number of festivities in the area.
