Sixteen people were injured in a gun battle between two groups in a park in New Orleans, US, where hundreds of people had gathered for a block party. Multiple suspects fired into a crowd of over 300 people, reports said. Witnesses were quoted as saying that the two groups involved in the gun fight left the park after the shootout. While 10 victims were taken to hospitals on ambulance, six used private transport to arrive at emergency rooms. Besides the block party, the filming of a music video was underway at the time of the shootout. “At the end of the day, it’s really hard to police against a bunch of guys who decide to pull out guns and settle their disputes with 300 people in between them,” New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said. “That’s just not something you can tolerate in the city.” Source: http://indianexpress.com/article/world/world-news/at-least-10-shot-in-new-orleans-during-party-after-parade/ shootout, gun battle, New Orleans, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu
