New Orleans Police say shooting leaves 1 dead, 9 injured

One person is dead and nine others hurt after a shooting on New Orleans' Bourbon Street, police said early Sunday.

Police said in a statement Sunday morning that "multiple victims" may have been involved in the shooting that happened at the intersection of Iberville and Bourbon streets. Overall eight men, one fatally, and two women were shot.

About 30 police officers were on the block when the shooting happened. Police are now on the scene investigating the shooting. One of the arrested individuals was identified as a victim in the incident, who is being treated for his injuries.

Harrison said he did not know what led to the shooting.

Twelve people, including one of those shot, were arrested in the French Quarter on Saturday and Sunday and charged with illegal possession of a firearm, police said. They were between the age of 20 and 37.

The popular area was crowded because of the Thanksgiving holiday and Bayou Classic football game in the Superdome.

"We're going to continue to pursue this aggressively", Harrison said.

The shooting took place on the final night of Bayou Classic weekend in New Orleans.

NOPD officers have arrested 11 people in the past 48 hours for illegally carrying weapons in NOPD's Eighth District, consisting mostly of the French Quarter. Landrieu said authorities believe the suspects are from out of town. "It's just a tragic end to what was otherwise a lovely weekend".
