NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A man and a 7-month-old boy have been fatally shot in an apparent ambush on a New Orleans bridge.
Police spokesman Frank B. Robertson III told The Associated Press that someone opened fire on the 25-year-old man Wednesday night as he rode in the back seat of a black Honda Accord on the Crescent City Connection bridge.
Robertson says the boy was in a car seat beside the man. He says a woman who was driving and another woman who was a front-seat passenger were not hurt.
The boy was taken to a hospital, where he died.
The shooting happened just past the toll plaza area on the West Bank entrance to the bridge.
Robertson says police do not have a named suspect, but believe the shooter knew the man0
