NEW ORLEANS — A man was killed in an Algiers shooting Wednesday afternoon, NOPD officials said.
The shooting was reported in the 2200 block of Cobblestone Lane around 4:15 p.m.
Police say the male victim sustained a gunshot wound in the attack and was later declared dead.
No information on a possible suspect or motive was released Wednesday night.
The victim was not identified pending notification of his next of kin.
His killing is the latest in a pattern of gun-related crimes throughout New Orleans. NOPD officials have acknowledged the uptick in violence and authorized overtime for homicide detectives and patrol officers in response to the spike.
