Three men were shot Thursday evening outside the University Medical Center in New Orleans, the police department said.
Officers said they located the victims after being called in at 6:35 p.m. at the 2100 block of Canal Street. Two went to the hospital alone and emergency medical services took the third, police said.
Police closed the northbound canal pending the investigation.
Several officers were examining a taxi on North Galvez Street near Canal. And two blocks from Bienville Street, residents said they heard dozens of gunshots before police arrived. A woman showed a reporter three bullet holes in her house and one in her car.
A police department spokesperson said officers are trying to determine if the Canal and Bienville shootings were related.
