The NOPD says five of the six people shot late Friday night in Mid-City were juveniles ages 15-17 and include one teenager who died from his wounds at the scene.

It happened about 10:30 p.m. at the intersection of City Park Avenue and Canal Boulevard.  

Officers responded to the scene after they received a call that someone had been shot near the intersection. They found five teenage males and an adult male suffering from gunshot wounds. 

Police say all six victims were in one car, being followed by multiple suspects in a black Dodge sedan. The suspects opened fire, striking everybody in the victims' car. 

The surviving victims were rushed to the hospital for treatment, where their conditions were not known as of Saturday morning. 

The NOPD investigation is ongoing. No further information was immediately available.
