One man was shot in the hand Sunday evening on Toledano Street, and another man was shot in the leg Monday morning on Audubon Street, New Orleans police said.
Around 6:10 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 14, a man in his late 20s was in the 3900 block of Toledano (between South Dorgenois and South Broad) when he was “flagged down by an unknown suspect who opened fire,” according to the initial NOPD report. The victim was hit in the hand, said NOPD Officer Juan Barnes, a deparmental spokesman.
Around 7:45 a.m. Monday, Barnes said that the NOPD was investigating another shooting, this one in the 3100 block of Audubon Street (just off Earhart Boulevard). In that case, a man was shot in the leg, Barnes said.
Further details were not immediately available in either case. Anyone with information is urged to call CrimeStoppers at 822-1111 to leave an anonymous tip that could be eligible for a cash reward.
