Three men were shot and injured early Tuesday in Metairie, officials said.
Shortly after midnight Tuesday, three men – ages, 20, 21 and 25 – were traveling on David Drive near West Napoleon Avenue when they reported someone shooting at them, said Col. John Fortunato, a spokesman with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office.
All three men were shot in the arm, Fortunato said. They continued driving, and when they reached the intersection of David Drive and West Metairie Avenue, their vehicle hit a curb.
They continued on David Drive before leaving the vehicle and running to a nearby fast food restaurant, Fortunato said. From there, a friend drove them to Ochsner Medical Center.
The men could not provide any information on the suspect(s) or other vehicle involved, Fortunato said. Shell casings were recovered near West Napoleon Avenue and David Drive.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the investigations bureau at 504-364-5300.
