At Least 11 People Injured in Shooting in New Orleans

According to the New Orleans Police Department, officers began hearing reports of gunfire around 3:21 a.m. local time.

Officers had been in the locality following the Bayou Classic football game, an annual event between Grambling State and Southern University held on Thanksgiving weekend.

Police said on their Twitter feed "one suspect had been apprehended near the scene".

At this time, New Orleans Police are not sure what prompted the shooting.

People wait with their luggage to leave the area on Canal Street next to Bourbon Street near the scene of a shooting.

"On my way out of the CVS, I heard pops". "It was so many, I couldn't keep count". Public Information Officer Aaron Looney added in a follow-up press release that an 11th person had been injured and self-registered at a local hospital.

Mr Ferguson said the 10 victims were taken to two hospitals and another walked in.

"The total number of victims in this incident is 11". For a fourth straight year, New Orleans continues to see significant reductions in violent crime.

The city continues to grapple with high rates of gun violence. We will not let the acts of a few deter us. No one has been arrested. Witnesses are asked to call New Orleans Police at 504-658-6080 or Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.

New Orleans police are investigating a shooting that killed two men and wounded two others, hours after a separate shooting in the city that left 10 people wounded.
