NEW ORLEANS (AP) -Police in New Orleans say a drive-by shooting Sunday killed two people and wounded five others in the city's Lower 9th Ward.
    
Police say killed were a man and an 18-year-old woman, and two of the wounded are ages 2 and 4.
    
They're in critical condition.
    
The Lower 9th ward was overwhelmed by Hurricane Katrina's floods in 2005 and has struggled with crime.
