Nine people were immediately taken to University Hospital by emergency responders, eight of whom had gunshot wounds, according to local channel
WWLTV. One more was injured in an attempt to escape from the shooting.
No fatalities have been confirmed, but four are in a critical condition.
Police confirmed the number of casualties stood at 12 following some discrepancies in initial hospital reports, suggesting that between five and 11
may have been injured.
“The shots just started ringing out, and everybody just started running, and the next thing I heard, 10-15 people got shot,” one witness told
local station WDSU.
Police believe three suspects were responsible for the gunfire, who were seen fleeing towards Claiborne Avenue. A door-to-door search is being
conducted in the hopes of tracing one or more of them.
“The parade was only about two or three blocks long, and when the end of the second line was at the corner of Villere and Frenchmen, shots rang out
– maybe two different types of weapons,” NOPD Superintendent Ronald Serpas told WDSU.
Another week, another shooting, this is terrible, but if by now you still believe there is no hidden agenda then u'l never will.
This has got to be like what the 3rd week in a row a public shooting has taken place? They are coming for your guns.
You know how people are always saying DHS is at War with the US citizen. Well if this continues people will beg for armored vehicles on the
Shrugs... Sad news.
