A triple shooting has killed a father and left his six-month-old son left fighting for his life in Louisiana on Thursday night.

New Orleans Police officials said 26-year-old Lenord Moses died in the triple shooting outside the Cypress Run Apartments. His infant son, Kelvin Moses was shot in his hip as he sat on his father’s lap in the driver’s seat of the vehicle.

Another 26-year-old victim who sat in the car is also recovering from a gunshot wound.

Following the shooting, heart-wrenching images taken from the scene show emergency responders frantically treating the baby boy.

A witness told a local T.V. station that little Kelvin Moses was removed from the car by a woman along with several good samaritans and said the baby appeared going in and out of consciousness.

The shocked samaritans gathered around to help the child using a flashlight to keep the infant awake and prayed while awaiting paramedics to arrive on the scene.

Emergency responders rushed the 6-month-old to a local hospital where he is recovering in serious but stable conditon.

Brandon Simms, a friend of Leonard Moses, said two suspects opened fire on the car shortly after they pulled into the apartment complex.

The father died at the scene after getting stuck in the head by a bullet.

It’s sad because the baby got shot, and by me having a daughter it was hard,” said Simms

He added, “I never see him getting into it with nobody, so I never knew of anybody wanting to kill him.”

One resident who lives in the complex anonymously told WDSU that the person sitting in the passenger seat of the car got into an earlier argument with one of the gunmen at a nearby store. Moses was reportedly driving him home.

Police have yet to determine a motive but are still investigating the shooting and ask anyone with information to contact Crimestoppers at (504)822-1111.
