NEW ORLEANS - Gunmen opened fire on dozens of people marching in a neighborhood Mother's Day parade in New Orleans yesterday, wounding at least 19 people, police said.
The FBI said that the shootings appeared to be "street violence" and weren't linked to international terrorism.
Many of the victims were grazed, and most of the wounds weren't life-threatening, police spokeswoman Remi Braden said. No deaths were reported as of last night.
Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas told reporters that a 10-year-old girl was grazed in the shooting about 2 p.m. She was in good condition. He said three or four people were in surgery, but he didn't have additional information about their conditions.
