Two people were killed Sunday night in the 5400 block of Burgundy Street in the Lower 9th Ward, New Orleans police reported.
Seven people were shot in all around 8 p.m., said Officer Frank Robertson, a spokesman for the New Orleans Police Department.
He said five victims were transported to the hospital. Two were in stable condition, and a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old were in critical condition.
Witnesses observed a late-model dark-colored vehicle, possibly a Honda Accord with possibly a Louisiana commercial license plate, leaving the scene with several men inside it, Robertson said.
