One man was wounded in a shooting on Loyola Avenue near the Isidore Newman School on Monday morning, and another man was shot Sunday night on South Saratoga Street in Central City, New Orleans police said.

The shooting near Newman was in the 5000 block of Loyola Avenue (between Robert and Soniat streets), NOPD spokeswoman Dawne Massey said around 6:20 a.m. Monday, March 20.

“Residents in the area say a man was walking his dog when he saw a man breaking into cars,” according to a report by Meg Gatto of FOX 8 News. “He confronted the man who then shot him in the leg.”

Another man was shot around 10:45 p.m. Sunday in the 2800 block of South Saratoga Street (near Washington Avenue), police reports show. Police found a man in his 30s with a gunshot wound there, and he was taken to the hospital for treatment, according to the initial NOPD report.

Also on Sunday, another victim showed up at the hospital with a gunshot wound after what police initially believed was a shooting at Washington and South Derbigny, Massey said, but that investigation was later reclassified as a medical incident — which often refers to an accidental or self-inflicted gunshot wound.
