NEW ORLEANS -- The FBI is calling it street violence, not an act of terror. But a shooting in New Orleans' 7th Ward Sunday shattered the festive mood at a Mother's Day parade.
Mayor Mitch Landrieu is urging witnesses to come forward. At least 19 people were wounded, three of them seriously.
A news release says that the wounded included 10 men, seven women, a boy and a girl. The children were both 10 years old.
The release says two people were in surgery Sunday. Many of the victims were grazed and most of the wounds were not life-threatening.
The shooting happened just before 2 p.m. Sunday during a second-line parade organized by the social club called The Original Big 7.
Police say three suspects fled the scene, and they've made no arrests.
