The shooting occurred at about 5:37 p.m. when an unknown Black male suspect was walking with the victim and allegedly shot the victim in the head, and fled the scene, according to the NOPD on Tuesday.
First District detectives have since initiated an attempted murder investigation. The victim was not identified.
Police officials described the suspect as having medium-length dreadlocked hair, facial hair and was last seen wearing grey and white Nike tennis shoes.

New Orleans Police arrested a 44-year-old man in connection to a Bourbon Street shooting that injured a male victim on Saturday, according to officials on Monday.
Eighth District detectives arrested Kendall Woolridge on suspicion of attempted murder and illegal use of a weapon after turning himself hours after the shooting, according to New Orleans Police.
Logs show an aggravated by shooting was reported to NOPD dispatchers at about 3:21 a.m. in the 500 block of Bourbon Street.
Woolridge was booked into the Orleans Parish Justice Center on suspicion of charges that include attempted second-degree murder and illegal use of a weapon, with a total bond amount listed at $125,000, according to online records. Woolridge was appointed a public defender, who objected to the bond amount.
Records show Woolridge made his first appearance in section M2 of Orleans Criminal District Court on Monday via video conference due to coronavirus-related court closures. Woolridge is scheduled to appear on a rule to show cause 3 p.m. Aug. 25 in section M5, according to records.
