The New Orleans Police Department is investigating a shooting that injured a one-year-old boy this afternoon. Police reported the shooting shortly before 2:00 p.m. Tuesday.

"Preliminary report shows a child was hit by a gunshot," said NOPD. "The victim was transported to a local hospital by private conveyance."

The scene is right off the University Medical Center Campus, and about five blocks from where the Krewe of Zulu was parading.

Police say the preliminary investigation indicates there was some sort of domestic situation that turned violent, and the perpetrator fired a shot at an unknown target, which was not the child. The boy was hit in the neck, but was said to be "very alert" and in stable condition.
