Five Teens Shot at New Orleans Bar

Comstock/Thinkstock(NEW ORLEANS) -- New Orleans police are searching for the person they believe shot five teens at a New Orleans bar late Saturday, killing one of them and leaving one in critical condition.

Police were called to the scene just after midnight when shots were fired and the gunman fled the scene. EMTs pronounced an 18-year-old male victim dead at the scene. The other victims – three females aged 14, 16 and 17, and a 15-year-old male – were taken to a local hospital for treatment.

The victims' identities have not been released, but according to ABC News New Orleans affiliate WGNO-TV the deceased man was arrested in 2008 for burglary and possession of stolen goods.

Authorities are working to determine the shooter’s identity and motive.
