NEW ORLEANS- Police say a gunman apparently opened fire on teenagers attending a party in a New Orleans bar and fled, leaving one 18-year-old man dead and four other teens wounded.

Police said early Sunday a 16-year-old girl was in critical condition and two other girls ages 14 and 17 and a 15-year-old boy were hospitalized in stable condition. Police say all had gunshot wounds.

A police statement says shots erupted late Saturday just before midnight and all five were found in the bar where the 18-year-old was pronounced dead by paramedics.

A police spokesman, Officer Gary Flot, told The Associated Press by phone early Sunday that he had no immediate details about the circumstances, a motive or the suspect's whereabouts.

Those shot were not immediately identified.
