Three people were shot at a gas station on Chef. Highway just after 6:30 this morning. Witnesses could see it from the I-10.
"That station is wrapped up with some police boy. Whoooo! They got it roped off with the yellow tape," one passing motorist told WWL First News. "There's about a dozen police... all over the place and the ambulance."
Cops are gathering details.
"Based on preliminary information, two subjects were involved in a verbal altercation both produced guns and at lease one subject started shootings. Three victims were shot," Public Information Officer Juan Barnes said in an email. "No further information is available at this time."
We are waiting for word on the three victims' conditions.
It happened in the 6700 block of Chef Menteur Hwy.
