Two shootings early this morning in Metairie, one person is dead


There was a deadly shooting around 1:00am in Metairie.

Few details are available.

It happened in a residential neighborhood near the corner of West Metairie Avenue and Henry Landry Avenue.

JPSO initially said a "male victim" was in critical condition.  About an hour later, they sent an email saying it had become a murder investigation after the victim died.

About a mile away there was a second shooting in Metairie around 3:30am.

That one happened in the 200 block of North Elm Street.

Another male victim suffered what officials described as "not life threatening" injuries.

The sheriff's office is expected to release more details on both early morning shootings later today.
