Police, mayor discuss New Orleans weekend killings
NEW ORLEANS - The New Orleans police chief says police have developed more information about at least one of the occupants of a car involved in a deadly, weekend drive-by shooting in New Orleans.
Chief Ronal Serpas and Mayor Mitch Landrieu on Tuesday encouraged anyone with knowledge of the shooters' identities to come forward.
The shooting occurred shortly before 8 p.m. Sunday in New Orleans' Lower 9th Ward, killing two people and wounding five others.
Police said that Terrance McBride, the 33-year-old man who was killed, was the intended target of the shooters. Sixteen-year-old Jasmine Anderson also was killed.
Serpas says the conditions of a 32-year-old woman and her two small boys have improved but it's unclear how long they'll remain hospitalized.
Two other people injured were treated and released.
