A mass shooting occurred in one of the biggest tourist spots in New Orleans, leaving 9 injured and 1 fatality.

According to NOLA.Com, gunfire erupted before 1:30 a.m. in the 100 block of Bourbon St., between Canal and Iberville streets. The shooting victims are reportedly  eight men and two women ranging in age from 20 to 37 years old.

 

Because of the Bayou Classic that was taking place, police presence was heavy, but not secure enough to prevent this terrible tragedy. Two men were arrested at the scene for gun possession.

Prayers for everyone involved
