A woman was shot to death late Wednesday morning inside a home on Olive Street in Gert Town, New Orleans police said.

Police were called to a complaint of “possible forced entry into a residence” near the 7800 block of Olive (between Fern and Lowerline streets) at 11:11 a.m. Wednesday, June 14, according to a NOPD report.

“En route to the location, officers received a call of shots fired in the same area,” according to the report. “Upon arrival at about 11:15 a.m., officers discovered inside the residence the unresponsive body of a female suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.”

She was pronounced dead at the scene, the report states.

Another man was injured in a shooting overnight in the same block of Olive Street, but police have not said whether the two incidents are related.
