1 killed, 1 injured in Uptown shooting

New Orleans police are investigating a shooting that killed one person and injured another Wednesday.

The shooting happened just after 4 p.m. at Amelia and S. Saratoga streets.

Officers responding to a call of a "man down" found a 25-year-old man in the 2000 block of Amelia Street. He had been shot multiple time and died at the scene.

During the course of the investigation, detectives learned that a 53-year-old man suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the leg during the incident. Detectives believe he was walking in the block during the shooting and was not an intended target. 

Police are in the process of trying to determine a motive and locate suspects. Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
