A couple was robbed of their vehicle at gunpoint out of the parking lot of a St. Charles Avenue restaurant Saturday evening, and man was shot the same night on Jackson Avenue, New Orleans police said.
Around 10:15 p.m., a man and woman both in their 30s were in the back parking lot of Houston’s restaurant in the 1700 block of St. Charles Avenue, according to the initial NOPD report.
