As many as 12 people have been shot during a Mother's Day parade in the US city of New Orleans, police say.
Police Supt Ronal Serpas told reporters the victims included a 10-year-old who sustained a minor wound.
Local media, quoting officials, said three of the victims are in a critical condition.
TV station WWL-TV said three suspects were believed to have been involved and were still at large. It is unclear what sparked the shooting.
The station said nine people were taken to the city's University Hospital, of whom eight had gunshot wounds and one was injured while escaping the shooting.

==================================

Too early to say yet, but gangs could be it.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Just saw this on Yahoo: http://news.yahoo.co...-204220717.html

Most likely it's gang related considering the area in New Orleans where it occurred.

I can't see a motive. Guess it's too early to tell. Going by logic there would be no reason to do this without a target or any gain. (like money etc)


It would be a waste of bullets for a gang, which costs money.

Well, they could have seen someone or some people they didn't like like and opened fire, and started shooting at each other. These people don't really have much regard for human life.  It said they were looking for three people.

What few people know is that the FEMA was conducting their own Mother's Day party not two blocks away....

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Probably because mass shootings are so frequent in the USA now it is not really shocking news.

So horrific it has got this bad.

The BBC in the UK had a small piece on it.  It came after a football manager that has retired.  It use to big a big deal but seems to be a regular monthly occurrence.

As many as 12 inured in shooting at New Orleans Mother's Day parade


DEVELOPING: New Orleans police are searching for three suspects Sunday after at least 12 people were shot during a Mother’s Day parade.
Chief Serpas announced in a press conference that the youngest victim is believed to be a 10-year-old girl.  Police say she suffered a graze wound, WVUE Fox 8 reported.
Police say about 300 were attending the traditional jazz band parade when shots were fired.
Serpas said that the procession had been accompanied by officers, who saw two or three suspects run from the scene in the city's 7th Ward.
Nobody has been arrested. It's unclear what sparked the gunfire.
Eleven patients have been admitted to Interim LSU Public Hospital with no life threatening injuries, hospital spokesperson Marvin McGraw said.
Second-line parades are loose processions in which people dance down the street, often following behind a brass band. They can be impromptu or planned and are sometimes described as moving block parties.
A social club called The Original Big 7 organized Sunday's event.
No other information was immediately available.

No, mass shootings are still big news here. It's all the drunk drivers who kill and maim people you don't hear every story about on national news.

3 people involved? Sounds to me like some street beef. Couple idiots wearing different colored shirts saw each other and fired at will. If this is the case it wouldn't exactly be a standard mass shooting. This is what happens when rabid animals with no regard for others have illegal guns. Oh I'm sorry. Maybe we should try to understand them first. Yea right. Find 'em and hang 'em.
