A woman was shot in the thigh by an apparently random bullet late Sunday near the Walmart on Tchoupitoulas Street, the New Orleans Police Department reported.
The victim, a 30-year-old woman, was in the 1900 block of Tchoupitoulas at about 10:45 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 12, when she heard gunshots nearby. Then she realized she had been shot in the right thigh.
The victim drove herself to a local hospital for treatment.
