Dead And 7 Injured In New Orleans Shooting; Suspects Still At Large

Police and other emergency services are responding to a mass shooting outside a restaurant in New Orleans, local officials say.

Police Chief Michael Harrison said two suspects in hooded sweatshirts approached people standing outside of a business and opened fire "indiscriminately into the crowd" with a rifle and a handgun, striking 10 people. The pair then fled the scene on foot. "A lot of people saw and heard what happened".

"We want to make sure that the people involved in this don't take matters into their own hands", he emphasized.

The three deceased were described as two men and one woman. "We have plenty of experienced people who are out here tonight".

Three of the seven injured people were taken by ambulance to University Medical Center's trauma center, police said.

Mayor LaToya Cantrell condemned the violence in a statement released soon after the shootings.

One of the shooters wielded a long gun and the other had a pistol, killing two men and one woman at the scene, Harrison said.

The circumstances surrounding the shooting is also unknown.

Later that evening, another shooting was reported in a different part of New Orleans, police said it is unclear right now if the two events were connected. "I speak for everyone in our City when I say we are disgusted, we are infuriated, and we have had more than enough". Three more lives-gone. It has to end.

Investigators work the scene of a shooting in New Orleans, Saturday, July 28, 2018. This happened near my neighborhood, on the edge of Broadmoor.

"This has to be personal", Harrison said.
