NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans police are investigating a shooting that has injured a woman and a 7-year-old girl.

Officer Garry Flot, a police spokesman, says bullets struck the woman - who's in her 30s - in the stomach and the little girl in the face. Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas says both victims are in serious condition.

It happened at about 4:30 p.m.

WWL-TV reports (http://bit.ly/GA6KiM ) police have not named a suspect or motive, and Serpas said it's too early to tell whether the victims were the intended targets. He said the shooting may have stemmed from an altercation in a nearby neighborhood earlier Wednesday.


Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
