Seventeen People Shot at New Orleans Mother’s Day Parade

Well this is terrible: At around 2 p.m. on Sunday, two or three gunmen opened fire as around 200 Mother’s Day celebrants watched a brass band round the corner of Frenchman Street and North Villere Street in New Orleans’s Seventh Ward. Luckily, no one was killed, but at least seventeen people — two of them reportedly children — were injured. Though there were a number of cops on the scene, the suspects managed to flee. “This is an extremely unusual occurrence, and we’re confident that we will make swift arrests,” said police spokesman Remi Braden, who also confirmed that “most of the wounds are not life-threatening.”
