Shootings, deaths in rash of New Orleans violence

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Police in New Orleans were investigating the afternoon shootings of a man and a woman.

Neither person's wounds were considered life threatening. The Saturday shootings in the Mid City area were the latest outbreak of violence in the city.

Five people were shot on Friday — four in one location in the Treme (treh-MAY') area and another six blocks away. Police were seeking two gunmen in a red car in connection with at least some of the Friday shootings.

Another man was killed early Saturday, shortly after midnight, in eastern New Orleans.
