Three dead, seven injured in New Orleans shooting


NEW ORLEANS: Three people were killed and at least seven others were injured in a mass shooting in New Orleans late Saturday night, officials said.

Police said two gunmen shot indiscriminately into a crowd at about 10:30pm local time, about three miles from the city’s famed French quarter.

Three of the wounded were pronounced dead at the scene and seven others were taken to local hospitals. The conditions of the wounded were not immediately available.

“There is no place in New Orleans for this kind of violence,” New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell said on her official Twitter page.
