UPDATE: 12 people shot at intersection of Frenchmen and N. Villere streets

10-year-old girl among victims
UPDATED 3:54 PM CDT May 12, 2013



The victims include a 10-year-old girl who sustained a minor wound. At least four people were in surgery mid-afternoon and patients had been taken to four area hospitals.

No suspects were in custody and it was not clear what motivated the shooter or shooters. Police are looking for three people in connection with the attack.

"Shots just started ringing out and everyone started running," one eyewitness told WDSU's Rachel Wulff. "Next thing I hear, 10, 15 people got shot."

19 hurt at New Orleans Mother's Day parade shooting

William M. Welch, USA TODAY8:32 p.m. EDT May 12, 2013

Shots fired during an informal Mother's Day afternoon parade in New Orleans injured 19 people, two of them children, police said Sunday.

The wounded included 10 men and seven women as well as a boy and a girl, both 10.

Remi Braden, director of public affairs for the New Orleans Police Department, said there were no fatalities and "most of the wounds are not life-threatening.''

The shots were fired at 1:47 p.m. in the area of North Villere and Frenchmen streets during what is locally referred to as "a second-line parade,'' Braden said.

Both children were reported in good condition with graze wounds to the body, police said, and two of the adults were in surgery. Police said many of the victims suffered graze wounds, in some cases by ricocheted bullets.

"At this point, there are no fatalities, and most of the wounds are not life threatening,'' police spokesman Garry Flot said.

Police: Suspect Arrested in La. Parade Shooting
May 16, 2013



Authorities have arrested the man wanted in a Mother's Day parade shooting that wounded 19 people in New Orleans after he was identified in surveillance video that showed him running from the scene as the crowd scattered in all directions, police said.

Akein Scott, 19, was arrested Wednesday night in the Little Woods section of eastern New Orleans, police department spokeswoman Remi Braden said. She said no additional details were available and would not be until Thursday morning.

A possible motive has not been disclosed, and authorities have not publicly identified any other suspects. Investigators launched an intense search for Scott, with Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas urging him to surrender at a news conference Monday and warning the teen that "we know more about you than you think we know." At one point, SWAT team members and U.S. marshals served a search warrant at one location but did not find Scott.

Police offered a $10,000 reward in the case, and investigators received several tips after images from the surveillance camera were released.

Police previously said Scott had an arrest record involving drug and weapon charges.

Second suspect arrested in New Orleans parade shooting, police say
May 16, 2013

Police say they have arrested a second suspect in the shooting that injured 20 people at a parade on Mother's Day.

Police Chief Ronal Serpas identified the second suspect as 24-year-old Shawn Scott, brother of 19-year-old Akein Scott.

Akein Scott was arrested Wednesday night. Serpas says Shawn Scott was arrested Thursday.

Both face 20 counts of attempted second-degree murder.

Akein Scott appeared before a magistrate judge Thursday. His bond was set at $10 million.

Serpas says four additional people have been arrested and charged with harboring the suspects.

Serpas says investigators believe the Scotts worked together in the shooting.

New Orleans says gunfire won't end 'second lines'
May 18, 2013

NEW ORLEANS (AP) ó New Orleans officials and cultural advocates say the Mother's Day parade shootings that left 20 people injured won't spell the end of second-line parades, the local tradition that celebrates the city and its people.
Police this week arrested two brothers and charged them with 20 counts each of attempted second-degree murder. They're accused of firing into a second-line parade, scattering the crowd and wounding 19 with gunfire. One person was hurt fleeing the chaos.
In a second-line parade, watchers of a street procession of brass band musicians and elaborately clad marchers often join in, forming a "second line" of marchers.
Second-line parades have been around for generations as part of Mardi Gras and other holiday celebrations, and are perhaps best known as a feature of the city's famed jazz funerals.
Last weekend's Mother's Day march was sponsored by the Original Big 7 Social Aid and Pleasure Club, and president Edward Buckner said they will re-stage it June 1 through the same neighborhood in New Orleans' 7th Ward. They also plan to return next Mother's Day, he said.
Buckner said the kind of violence that happened May 12 can't be allowed to destroy such a unique tradition.
"These parades are for the people of New Orleans," he said at a rally held at the shooting site. "We won't let the streets beat us."
 
Second-line parades have also been featured in major motion pictures. One such procession in the French Quarter shows up in early segments of the 1973 James Bond film "Live and Let Die."
"Second lines are an amazing part of our culture and we support them," Mayor Mitch Landrieu has said.
Bruce Raeburn, curator of the Hogan Jazz Archive at Tulane University, said any suggestion that second lines attract violence is invalid, as well.
"The reason occasional violence occurs is because of the crowd situation," Raeburn said. "The crowd usually serves as cover for those who want to do violence the same as with Mardi Gras or the Bayou Classic.
