Five people were wounded in a shooting at the intersection of LaSalle Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard on Monday afternoon.
Officials said none of the injuries were life-threatening.
Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas was among those who responded to the scene. He said that a group of six teenage boys or young men was gathered outside a small grocery when a late model white sedan - possibly a Nissan or Pontiac - drove past. Shots were fired from inside that vehicle.
The car sped off in the direction of the Mississippi River.
