Update, 11 a.m. Sunday: Four teenagers were shot during a birthday party late Saturday in Marrero, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office said.
Two 16-year-olds and two 15-year-olds suffered non-life-threatening gunshot wounds to the knee, cheek, lower leg and neck, JPSO spokesman John Fortunato said Sunday morning. All of the victims were transported to University Hospital.
Around 25 teenagers were attending the birthday party at Chitchat Rental Hall at 5425 Lapalco Boulevard when shots were fired outside the hall around 11:30 p.m., Fortunato said.
