Ten Shot At the Early Hours Of Sunday In New Orleans

Emerging report revealed that no fewer than ten people were shot–one dead–in New Orleans’ French Quarter early Sunday.

The shots were fired at around 1:30 a.m on the famous Bourbon Street at its intersection with Iberville Street, one block from Canal Street.

“Shots rang out, we responded” a source said, adding it was not clear what triggered the incident.

Ten victims aged between 20 and 37 were shot, two of them women and eight of them men. According to Superintendent Michael Harrison one of the victims is dead;

“one …expired at the hospital.Our hearts go out to the deceased.”

Two arrests were made for illegal possession of firearms.

“One of [the]victims was in possession of a firearm … another subject, who may or may not be affiliated with this event, was arrested for possession of a firearm” Harrison told WDSU.

“This is the wrong place to bring firearms, we’ve made that clear.” he added. “We are going to pursue this to the fullest extent of the law.”
