A man and an 18-year-old woman are dead after a drive-by shooting in New Orleans.

The shooting happened over the weekend in a neighborhood that was ravaged by Hurricane Katrina and has struggled with crime.

A woman and two children, ages 2 and 4, are in critical condition and a 13-year-old girl and a 37-year-old woman are in stable condition.

The victims were all in front of a house when a dark car occupied by men drove up, opened fire and sped off.
