United States of Violence: Shooting at Mother’s Day Parade

May 13, 2013  •  From theTrumpet.com

Video released early Monday by New Orleans police shows a suspect in the Mother’s Day gunfire that wounded 19 people during a neighborhood parade. The grainy surveillance video shows a crowd suddenly scattering in all directions, with some falling to the ground. They appear to be running from a man who turns and runs out of the picture.

Police believe more than one gun was fired in the burst of Sunday-afternoon violence. The scene is about 1.5 miles from the heart of the French Quarter, which is popular with tourists.
