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.
