Three people have been killed and seven others injured following a shooting in New Orleans.

City police spokesman Aaron Looney said in a statement that the shooting happened on the 3400 block of Claiborne Avenue, about three miles from the French Quarter.

According to authorities, two people wearing hooded-style clothing approached a large crowd in a strip mall around 8.30pm Saturday night.

The suspects fired shots ‘indiscriminately’ into the crowd.

New Orleans police superintendent Michael Harrison told reporters late Saturday night: ‘We believe they actually stood over one of the individuals and fired multiple rounds.

‘This has to be personal. Firing indiscriminately into a crowd? Shooting 10 people? Killing three? That’s personal, it doesn’t get more personal and we take it personal, whoever did this, you should know that the law enforcement takes it personal and we’re coming for you,’ Harrison added.

New Orleans police said one suspect was armed with rifle and the other had a handgun.

The suspects then fled the scene on foot northbound on South Claiborne Avenue toward Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard.

Two of the victims were men and one was a woman. Two victims died on the scene and were found in the strip mall parking lot.

The third victim was found dead a few blocks away on Louisiana Avenue, according to the station.

The Orleans Parish Coroner’s Office will determine official cause of death and release the victims’ names, upon completion of autopsy and notification of family.
