Police say two men were fatally shot as they sat in a sport-utility vehicle in New Orleans.
Officer Frank Robertson tells The Times-Picayune the shooting was reported about 9 a.m. Tuesday.
Robertson said the men, whose names and ages were not immediately available, were approached by someone who fired at them as they sat in the SUV. He said both men died at Interim LSU Public Hospital a short time after the shooting.
Police did not immediately have a motive for the shooting.
A proposal to cut mental services at the Interim LSU hospital system in New Orleans has officials scrambling to find space to treat the mentally ill. Officials say the cuts are not only a health issue, but also a matter of public safety.
