Seven Shot, Two Fatally, in New Orleans Drive-By

A drive-by shooting killed a man and an 18-year-old woman and wounded five other people, in a New Orleans neighborhood that was ravaged by Hurricane Katrina and has struggled with crime, police said. A woman and two children, aged 2 and 4, were in critical condition and a 13-year-old girl and a 37-year-old woman were in stable condition, a police spokesman said in a news release. He said all were in front of a house when a dark car occupied by men drove up, opened fire and fled the scene. This incident occurred on the heels of another shooting in the area on Sunday where a 20-year-old man shot a friend in a hotel room then killed himself, authorities said.
