The men, ages 23 and 29, were shot in the 100 block of South Rampart Street, said Capt. Jeff Walls, commander of the New Orleans Police Department’s 8th District. The shooting occurred after an argument, Walls said.
One of the victims was shot in the leg and the other was believed to have been shot in the head, Walls said, but neither man’s injuries were believed to be serious.
Two suspects were in custody, Walls said, but he did not identify them immediately.
