NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

New Orleans police were investigating separate fatal shootings Fat Tuesday near the parade route.

The first incident happened at about 3:15 p.m. at the intersection of Union and Carondelet streets. Police Commander Paul Noel said a fight broke out among a group of people and shots were fired. A juvenile male was shot in the leg. He was listed in stable condition. 

Tuesday night, NOPD released a photo of a suspect in the case.

A second shooting was reported at about 4:30 p.m. at St. Charles Avenue and Second Street, where another fight broke out and an adult male was shot and later died.

"Shooting Uptown at Second and St. Charles we have identified the perpetrator and now have arrest warrant for that person who was actually a known acquaintance with the victim at that parade," said NOPD Chief Michael Harrison. "An argument started. It got fatal. That subject began firing and shot the person. But we have an arrest warrant for his arrest so officers and detectives move really quickly. All of these things happen right there in the presence of our police officers."
