NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Police say a 15-year-old is dead and a 13-year-old wounded after a shooting Saturday night.

The Times-Picayune (https://bit.ly/2jNGusg ) reports that just before 6 p.m. Saturday police responded to a call about a shooting at the intersection of Desire and North Galvez Streets.

The police news release says they found the dead 15-year-old on the sidewalk. He’d been shot multiple times.

The other teenager was brought by a private vehicle to a hospital.

Albert Greenleaf, who lives near where the shooting happened, tells the newspaper he was on his way to pick up a pizza when he heard about eight shots.
