Seven people have been shot in six separate incidents around New Orleans Saturday night and Sunday.

Two women were shot in the 3500 block of Paris Avenue, near Dillard University. According to an NOPD spokesman, they were both shot several times just before 9 p.m. Saturday and were hospitalized in stable condition.

About 7 p.m., a 17-year-old male was shot multiple times at the intersection of North Rocheblave and Allen Street in the 7th Ward. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

And, an hour earlier, a 24-year-old man was shot in the leg on the I-10 Service Road in New Orleans East. He was in stable condition after being driven to the hospital.

The violence continued Sunday morning. At about 12:45 a.m., an adult female was shot multiple times in the 7100 block of Bunker Hill in eastern New Orleans. She was transported to the hospital and is listed in stable condition.

Police say another incident occurred just after 1 a.m. Sunday, when bullets went through the walls of a residence in the 5000 block of Frenchman Street. An 18-year-old man inside was hit by a bullet, but his injuries are not life-threatening.

At 12:20 Sunday afternoon, a 26-year-old male was shot in Gert Town at the intersection of South Carrollton and Olive Street, and was listed in critical condition.

Anyone with information on these shootings is asked to call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
