Two teenagers were shot, one fatally, when they were sprayed with bullets from an assault rifle Saturday afternoon in Marrero, authorities said. A white Hyundai Sonata with three males inside stopped about 1:05 p.m. in the 2000 block of Carver Drive. A man got out of the rear seat with an AK-47 assault rifle and fired numerous shots at the two teens, ages 18 and 16, who were standing nearby. The 18-year-old victim died later at University Hospital from a gunshot wound to the head. He was identified as Elijah Lee, of the 6500 block of Benedict Drive

A 20-year-old woman and a 50-year-old man were found shot inside a trailer in Gentilly Woods early Monday morning, police said. Police responded to a report of gunfire about 1 a.m. and found the two injured residents in a trailer near the intersection of Dreux Avenue and Congress Drive. Neither wounds appeared life-threatening.

A Florida teen-ager and two 24-year-old women -- one from New Orleans and the other from Galveston, Texas -- were hit by gunfire about 1 a.m. this morning in the French Quarter, police said.The gunfire broke out in the 300 block of Decatur Street, as crowds partied hours after the NBA All-Star game Sunday night.

Isn't Club Dreams right there? House of Blues? That sushi place that's always changing names?
