Two young men shoot it out in New Orleans and leave suspects everywhere

A recording of police scanner traffic has given a minute-by-minute account of the New Orleans Police Department response to a shooting incident that occurred on Sunday. The recording describes the intense search that followed the shooting as well as the discovery of victim after victim as the scene unfolded.

A total of nine people were shot in the 700 block of Bourbon Street in New Orleans.

Later that night, NOPD released additional surveillance footage and said that pictures from the video with description details of the suspects would be released as soon as possible.

An interim LSU Hospital spokeswoman has confirmed that of the nine victims that were wounded, one was in critical condition while four others were in stable condition. The conditions of the remaining victims were not immediately available, but it is known that at least one of them was released from the hospital on the same day and that the others had suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The NOPD held a news conference on Sunday afternoon, just a few feet away from the scene of the shootings. Superintendent Ronald Serpas said that the shooting was the result of “two cowardly young men” who had been trying to settle a dispute between themselves “without a moment’s care for anyone else.” He also added that some of the victims were not from New Orleans.

Serpas then went on to say that at the time of the shooting there were three officers within a block of the crime scene and had responded immediately. He said that a total of 25 officers had been on patrol at the time, throughout the Eighth District, including the French Quarter, Marigny and Treme neighborhoods.

Meanwhile, Mayor Mitch Landrieu has released a statement:

These kinds of incidents will not go unanswered. NOPD was in the immediate vicinity at the time of the incident, and I am confident that between video evidence and eyewitness accounts, we will bring the perpetrators to justice. Our crime fighting efforts have brought murders in the city of New Orleans to a historic nearly 30-year low. But on days like today, the statistics don’t matter because every life is precious – from the 9th Ward to the French Quarter. We will not rest until every corner of this city is safe.
