Mass Shooting In New Orleans Leaves 10 Shot, Suspect(s) Unknown

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA — In what police are calling a mass shooting, 10 people were injured when a gunman opened fire on a busy street just after 3 am this morning.

Two of the 10 were in critical condition in local hospitals, Police Superintendent Shaun Ferguson said. No arrests were announced by midday Sunday.

“What happened in our city overnight was a cowardly and senseless act that we cannot and will not tolerate,” Ferguson said in a statement.

Ferguson told The New Orleans Advocate/The Times-Picayune that a person of interest has been detained, but it was not immediately clear whether the person had any connection to the shooting.

Police were on the scene quickly, as their presence was stepped up for the holiday weekend festivities.

The shooting took place near the famous French Quarter on Canal Street.

Additional information has not been released, and police are still searching for the suspect or suspects.
