One woman was shot and killed in Central City on Saturday night (June 15), according to the New Orleans Police Department, while another woman was injured in the shooting.

Both women were transported to University Medical Center, which is where one of the women died, according to NOPD spokesman Gary Scheets.

Police said the call reporting the shooting came in about 8:08 p.m.

At the scene Saturday evening, five police cars were parked in the 2800 block of Street while officers investigated an area near a two-story apartment building.

More than a dozen people stood near the intersection of Magnolia Street and Washington Avenue, small crowds of people gathering on the sidewalk to peer at the scene, while neighbors watched the investigation from their porches.

A woman collapsed on the grass in front of a home inside the crime tape and sobbing.

“Oh, my baby Jesus," she said. "We need you.”

Police placed several evidence cones near shell casings that littered the street.
