Two teenage boys and a three-year-old girl where injured Tuesday evening when a pair of gunmen opened fire on a group of people on South Salcedo Street, New Orleans police said.
“At about 710 p.m., two males approached a group of people in the 1300 blk of South Salcedo and began firing,” wrote NOPD Officer Garry Flot. “The suspects fled the scene in a white 4-door Titan truck. A 15-year-old male was struck in the hip and leg, a 16-year-old male was struck to the stomach and a 3-year-old girl was struck to the back.”
The 15-year-old victim was listed in stable condition after the shooting, but the 16-year-old and the 3-year-old were both in critical condition, Flot said.
Further details were not immediately available, but NOPD Superintendent Ronal Serpas was expected to speak at the shooting scene.
