The New Orleans Police Department investigating a shooting, unfortunately, is nothing new these days. However, responding to a call of someone shot in the buttock, that's probably not as common.

The NOPD was called to the intersection of Canal and Magazine streets on Saturday afternoon. Around 5:18 pm, police say a man was shot in the buttock.

As many of you probably know, just about all of Canal Street is busy most of the time. So, for this to happen in broad daylight in that area, is something else, to say the least.
