In the first incident, witnesses said a man retrieved a gun from his car after a disagreement went sour inside Neil’s Bahr on Chartres and Walker streets just after 2:00 a.m.

Authorities said the suspect shot a man in the arm on the patio; his victim is expected to recover.

While the police worked to respond, the second car with injured passengers rolled up to the scene where the cops say they asked for help.

Inside, investigators said they found three people with gunshot wounds from a shooting at a club several blocks away.

One person in the car reportedly arrived dead at the scene; the other two received a transport to a nearby hospital.
