16 wounded in New Orleans playground shooting

New Delhi: Over 16 people were injured in a firing at New Orleans, Bunny Friend Park on Sunday, where hundreds of people had gathered for filming a music video when the incident took place.

New Orleans Police Superintendent Michael Harrison said in an interview with a local newspaper that he believed various individuals had fired onto the gathering of more than 300 people.

“I can’t speak on the condition” of all the victims, Harrison said, but “no one has died at this time,” the newspaper reported him saying.

Three witnesses told the newspaper that they saw a man holding a silver-colored machine gun, and had also heard further gunshots coming from within the crowd as they ran past. Numerous individuals were lying on the pavement post the shooting.

New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) spokesperson Tyler Gamble said in the interview that the police came to know from the witnesses that “there were two groups that were firing shots at each other, and then ran off after each other on foot.”

A local news channel also explained about the police’s stance on the shooting episode that forces believed the firing stemmed from a vengeful group combat. The local media has reported the number of wounded as approximately around 10 to 16. They were rushed to the nearest local hospitals. New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu had reached the crime scene at the earliest possible to keep a check on the advancing condition.

No group has claimed the incident took place because of them. The police are yet investigating whether the incident was previously planned or not.

NOPD has not arrested anyone regarding the incident but is inspecting the cause of firing and people involved in the shooting.

No one has died in the incident and majority of the wounded are expected to not be in critical condition.
