Police are investigating five shootings within a 10-hour span amid a deadly surge of gun violence.
The recent spate of shootings have left three people dead, WWL-TV reported.
The first shooting happened Wednesday evening, when police officers found a man dead inside a vehicle in the Central City neighborhood. Later Wednesday, a man was found lying in a street in New Orleans East and was pronounced dead of a gunshot wound. Then, shortly before dawn Thursday, a shooting on Lafron Drive left one person dead.
Investigators are looking for a possible motive in each killing.
