New Orleans police said in a news release Sunday that the victims, who are cousins, were sleeping in a home when they heard a loud noise. When they looked at their security cameras, they saw an unknown man on their front porch.

News outlets report the victims started screaming and the man started shooting into the house.

One person was killed and three others were injured in a boat's collision with a parked barge in Louisiana.

The U.S. Coast Guard said in a news release that a 22-foot recreational boat with four passengers struck a barge around 4:15 a.m. Sunday and ran aground, ejecting one passenger near Bayou Segnette.

The barge launched a small boat to assist, recovering the ejected person.

One woman died and two women and one man were reported to be in serious and critical conditions.

The names of the victims haven't been released.
