Four shot in Metairie, three dead

Three people are dead after a quadruple shooting in Metairie that also sent one person to the hospital.

It happened at an apartment complex in the 2500 block of Pasadena Avenue in Metairie around 4:00am.  That's between West Napoleon and I-10 near Cleary Avenue.

The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's office says a woman called for help.

"Our 911 center received a call from a female reporting that she had been shot in the head."

Col. John Fortunato says she is at University Hospital.

When deputies arrived on the scene they found two males and a female dead in the apartment.

Fortunato says the victims are all adults.

"Two males were in the kitchen/dining room area, both had been shot, pronounced dead here on the scene.  And an additional female victim was also shot, pronounced dead here on the scene.  She was lying on the sofa in the living room."
