AT LEAST 11 PEOPLE WOUNDED IN NEW ORLEANS SHOOTING

At least 11 people were wounded early this morning in a shooting in New Orleans’ French Quarter.

The shooting unfolded around 3:21 a.m., when officers with the New Orleans Police Department heard gunfire. When they arrived at the scene, the 700 block of Canal Street, they “discovered multiple individuals had been struck by gunfire.”

Nearly a dozen people were shot — two of whom were in critical condition, authorities said in a news release. Of those hit, 10 people were transported to nearby hospitals and police said an 11th person walked to a hospital for treatment.

Investigators said someone was “detained near the scene,” but noted “their possible involvement in this incident remains under investigation.” No one has been arrested.

This is a developing story and more information will be released at a later time.
