3 dead, 7 wounded after gunmen in New Orleans fire on crowd

Posted July 30, 2018

New Orleans Police Department Superintendent Michael Harrison told reporters at the scene shortly after midnight that people are on the loose after fleeing on foot. "A lot of people were out here tonight".

"There is no place in New Orleans for this kind of violence", New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell said in a statement.

Another man and woman were pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.

"This was a large crowd and we know that people saw something, heard something", Harrison said.

The seven victims in the hospital - five men and two women - are being treated for "varying degrees of condition, some more critical than others", New Orleans EMS Director Dr. Emily Nichols said in the press conference.

"I speak for everyone in our city when I say we are disgusted and infuriated, and we have had more than enough", she wrote.

In October 2011, the younger brother of John Matthews, who owned Jazz Daiquiris at the time, was gunned down three days after Hankton was given a life sentence in the 2008 shooting. It has to end. "It's unacceptable anywhere", said Cantrell.

"This has to be personal". He said they appeared to have fired indiscriminately into the crowd, striking 10 people.

"Bringing the suspects to swift justice is imperative, but even more critically, we need an "all hands on deck" approach from the City towards fighting violent crime", the councilmembers wrote.

"If violence is going to be the life you choose, we're going to make sure prison if going to be the price you pay", said Harrison in his closing statement.
