New Orleans police are investigating a shooting late Sunday night in Faubourg Marigny that sent a man to the hospital and his vehicle barrelling into a building.
The 35-year-old victim was sitting at a red light with his fiancée at the corner of Dauphine Street and Elysian Fields Avenue when gunfire erupted around 11:15 p.m., Officer Garry Flot said. The man was shot, causing him to lose control of his vehicle. He was taken to the hospital for treatment. Video from WWL-TV showed a Jeep with heavy damage to the driver side’s door at the scene.
