New Orleans - Police in the American state of Louisiana say two men have been killed in a drive-by shooting in front of a high school during a basketball game.

Local media report that Edna Karr High School's auditorium was at capacity and was locked down for more than an hour.

Police Superintendent Michael Harrison said the men were in a car after being turned away from the game.

Harrison said one person died on the school lawn and the other at a hospital.

School officials told local media that one of the people graduated from Karr two years ago. A police news release says neither was a current student.

It said both men had multiple bullet wounds and the coroner would identify the two after autopsy.
