NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A man and a 7-month-old boy have been fatally shot in an apparent ambush on a New Orleans bridge.
Police spokesman Frank B. Robertson III told The Associated Press that someone opened fire on the 25-year-old man Wednesday night as he rode in the back seat of a black Honda Accord on the Crescent City Connection bridge.
Robertson says the boy was in a car seat beside the man. He says a woman who was driving and another woman who was a front-seat passenger were not hurt.
The boy was taken to a hospital, where he died.
The shooting happened just past the toll plaza area on the West Bank entrance to the bridge.
Robertson says police do not have a named suspect, but believe the shooter knew the man.

NEW ORLEANS — A man and his 7-month-old son were fatally shot in an apparent ambush near a New Orleans bridge spanning the Mississippi River, and authorities are offering a $15,000 reward for tips leading to whoever shot them.
Gang activity may be behind the shooting of DeShawn Butler, 25, and his son, DeShawn Kinard, Police Chief Ronal Serpas said Thursday.
The gunfire is believed to have come from a black sport utility vehicle with at least two people inside, Serpas said at a news conference. Butler was hit four times; his son, once.
Police do not have a named suspect but believe the shooter knew Butler. Police would not say whether Butler had been armed.
"Our multi-agency gang unit has been investigating a dispute between two groups known as the Fischer Fools and the Hot Block," Serpas said...............
