NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – From cell phone, social media, surveillance video, and even WGNO News reporter Darian Trotter who just happened to be enjoying the festivities, this may be the most documented mass shooting in New Orleans history.

The surveillance video shows a suspect unloading his gun into the crowd, then shows a profile shot – our best look at the suspect – as he runs away.

Detectives say there may have been one or two more shooters.

In all, 19 people were hit, including two 10-year-old children.
