Attempted murder suspect is sought

New Orleans police are searching for 26-year-old Damond Washington on two counts of attempted second-degree murder, Officer Garry Flot said Monday.

Police believe Washington shot a 33-year-old woman and a 55-year-old man in the 2000 block of Danneel Street in Central City about 2 a.m. Friday, sending both to the hospital with wounds that were not life-threatening.

Both victims were walking down the street when a man hopped out of a vehicle and started shooting, police said.

Sixth District Detectives are in charge of the investigation and can be contacted at (504) 658-6060.
