On Tuesday, three people were shot outside of New Orlean’s Xavier University where a graduation ceremony was taking place for a local high school, resulting in the death of one woman.
In a Tuesday afternoon press conference, NOPD Deputy Superintendent Christopher Goodly said that the shooting occurred shortly after the conclusion of Morris Jeff High School’s graduation ceremony, which was held at Xavier University’s Convocation Center.
Goodly said that the shooting was a result of a fight between two women in a parking area outside the building. Shortly after the fight, the suspect pulled out a gun and began shooting. He noted during a question period that police are unsure whether it was one of the women, or another suspect, who began shooting.
Two men were shot, suffering non-life threatening injuries. Goodly said that one man was shot in the shoulder, while the other was shot in the leg.
An elderly woman was shot, who died as a result.
Goodly noted that investigators have located some weapons that were at the scene, and have detained at least three individuals for questioning. No arrests have been made yet in connection tot he shooting.
Police are asking anyone with information regarding the shooting to contact detectives.
