New Orleans police on Tuesday were searching for a van that was involved in a quintuple shooting a night earlier in New Orleans East.
Surveillance footage police released shows a white van pull up near the corner of Dale Street and Chef Menteur Highway about 7:45 p.m.
A man who carried an assault rifle got out of the van and fired multiple shots, striking five men, ages 20, 31, 35, 54 and 61.
The man then got back into the van, which fled the scene.
Police have not provided information on the victims’ conditions, nor have they identified a motive for the shooting.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to contact 7th District detectives at (504) 658-6070 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
