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 on Twitter Sunday morning that "10 victims were shot" in the incident that happened at the intersection of Iberville and Bourbon streets.

Harrison said none of the victims was an intended target when two other men began arguing and shooting. "One victim has died from his injuries", tweeted the New Orleans Police Department.

NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison said Sunday afternoon detectives believe the shooting was the result of an argument between to men who were not local.

"One of victims was in possession of a firearm. another subject, who may or may not be affiliated with this event, was arrested for possession of a firearm."

Harrison said he did not know what led to the shooting. They were between the age of 20 and 37.

Extra uniformed and plainclothes officers were on duty and ambulance crews were on standby for what Mayor Mitch Landrieu said was supposed to be a festive time with college and pro football games in the city and people vacationing over the long Thanksgiving weekend.

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

"[Police] officers made two arrests at the scene, both males, for illegal carrying of weapons charges".

"This is unacceptable, especially on a night like this", Landrieu said. "It's a tragic end to what was otherwise a handsome weekend".
