New Orleans shooting leaves 11 people injured, police say
Two people in critical condition, and one person detained after early morning shooting in city’s historic French Quarter
New Orleans police say 11 people were hit in an early morning shooting on the edge of the city’s historic French Quarter.

City police said in a statement that two people are in critical condition and no arrests have been made. Law enforcement later added on social media
that one individual had been detained near the scene of the shooting with their possible involvement in the incident remaining under investigation.

10 people were taken to two hospitals and an 11th was a walk-in. No officers were injured in the shooting and
further details have yet to been released. No motive has been ascribed to the incident.

The shooting took place at 3.20am local time on a busy commercial block of Canal Street that has streetcar tracks and is near many hotels.
The mass shooting marks the second such incident to occur over the Bayou Classic weekend in recent years. In 2016 nine people were injured and one person killed in a shooting in the French Quarter sparked by a personal dispute.
The city continues to grapple with high rates of gun violence An analysis of crime data by the Advocate newspaper in April showed that while the murder rate in New Orleans had fallen by 40% in the first quarter of 2019, the rate of violent gun crime had remained relatively stable
