Four people were shot in New Orleans during three separate incidents that happened within 24 hours between Saturday and Sunday morning, according to police.

The pair approached the victim just before 8:30 a.m. in the 2000 block of Tonti Street. When the victim said he didn’t have any money, the man pulled a gun from his waistband and shot him.
Police said the victim was taken to the hospital and the would-be robbers fled.
Later Saturday night, shortly after 10 p.m., police said a 36-year-old man was shot in the French Quarter after getting into an argument with a friend’s roommate.
