NOPD Investigates Homicide at North Dorgenois and Feliciana

NOPD is investigating a fatal shooting this morning (Jan. 5) that left one man dead and another man injured.


Shortly after midnight, Fifth District officers responded to a double shooting at North Dorgenois and Feliciana streets. Upon arrival they found an unknown black male lying in the street with multiple gunshot wounds. EMS transported the victim to the hospital where he later died.


A second victim was found a short distance away at North Galvez and Clouet streets along with a four-door, gray, 2015 Chevrolet Sonic that was left running in the intersection. The second victim suffered what appeared to be a non-life threatening injury and was transported to the hospital.


The Orleans Parish Coroner’s Office will release the deceased victim’s name and official cause of death.
