In a statement, Detective E.P. Aguilera of the HPD’s Homicide Division said the victim managed to get out of his car and attempted to make it to a nearby Chevron station, where he collapsed in the parking lot between 12:30 and 1:00 a.m.


Shell casings were found in the road, leading police to believe the gunfire came from another car at this time.

Around the same hour, close to midnight, police said they responded to a call at the intersection of Nagle and Alabama in the Third Ward, where they found a man with multiple gunshot wounds, which potentially came from a drive-by shooting.

At this time, he is in the hospital in critical condition, but expected to survive.

According to the Chronicle, another shooting happened a day earlier at a convenience store on the same street.
