3 children, 2 adults shot in Harvey

HARVEY, La. (AP) - Jefferson Parish sheriff's deputies say three children and two adults were shot at an apartment in Harvey and three suspects are in custody.

Deputies say the shooting happened shortly after 4 a.m. Monday when one of the adults in the apartment open the front door.

Col. John Fortunato says injures appear to be nonlife-threating, but one of the children suffered multiple wounds.

The injured are been treated at a New Orleans hospital.

Fortunato says three suspects were arrested after a chase into New Orleans where the suspects abandoned their vehicle, but were caught a short time later.

Fortunato says motive behind the shooting is unknown.
