NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans police say a man killed another man and wounded a teenager in a shooting on Mother's Day.

Police tell news outlets they are seeking 21-year-old Donnell Brown III in the May 13 shooting that killed 35-year-old Herbert Foster and injured the teenage girl. Police did not say how old she is.
