9 injured in New Orleans' shooting

  • Police in New Orleans are trying to identify two men who shot and injured nine people on Bourbon Street Sunday morning, June 29. 

    Media reports indicate that some of the victims in the crowd were tourists as well. "This is a heinous crime," Police Department Superintendent Ronal Serpas said. Two young men armed with firearms settled a dispute amongst themselves without a thought and concern for others.

    The shooting happened a week before the beginning of the Essence Festival and Serpas mentioned that there will be additional security for the festival.
