There are reports that 11 people have been shot – 2 in critical condition – early Sunday in New Orleans’ famed French Quarter. Details inside…

Shots rang out early Sunday morning in New Orleans’ French Quarter and it resulted in 11 people being shot, leaving 2 of them in critical condition.

The New Orleans Police Department initially said there were 10 victims. However, they added an additional person after that person walked into a local hospital seeking treatment.

 

 

 

 

The shooting happened right off of Bourbon Street near a busy commercial block of Canal Street. There was a high police presence in the area due to the annual Bayou Classic football game between Grambling State University and Southern University that’s played at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The game always brings out a crowd, so police were in the mix.

 

 

While police reported they detained someone near the scene, they still haven't made any arrests yet. Police Supt. Shaun Ferguson said police didn't waste any time to respond to the shots since they were already in the area.

New Orleans mayor LaToya Cantrell issued a statement via Twitter addressing the shooting:
