A teenage girl was injured Saturday night in a triple drive-by shooting on a residential Gert Town street, the New Orleans Police Department reported.

The 15-year-old was sitting in a car outside a home in the 4300 block of Thalia Street at about 9:20 p.m. when a Red Kia Soul drove up. Gunfire erupted from the Kia, striking the teenager and two 37-year-old men. The suspects fled down Thalia in the car.

The Emergency Medical Service took the teen and one of the men to the hospital. The other man arrived at the emergency room in a private vehicle.

Further details were not immediately available. Anyone with information is urged to call the NOPD Sixth District station at 504-658-6060 to speak to a detective, or Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 to leave an anonymous tip that could be eligible for a cash reward.

This story was corrected on Sept. 6 to reflect that the 15-year-old and the two men were not in the car together.

  1. This is the 15 year old girl , I was not sitting with no men that where 37 years old. I was in a car falling asleep with a friend of the family waiting on her to pull off. I repeat I never once got out the car, story is a lie and I’m very disappointed, I got shot sitting in the car, VERY UPSET!!
