NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans may have held back on Governor John Bel Edwards’ decision to move Louisiana into Phase 3, but a crowded French Quarter on Saturday night proved just as threatening as COVID-19 with reports of a shooting on one of the world’s most (in)famous streets.
The New Orleans Police Department is currently investigating a double shooting that occurred shortly before 10 p.m. in the 500 block of Bourbon Street.
Initial reports show two teenage males sustained gunshot wounds.
One victim was transported to the hospital by EMS, while the second victim was transported by private conveyance.
WGNO was on the scene, but further information is not available at this time.
