Police: 5 Shot Along Mardi Gras Parade Route

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Police say an infant and four other people have been injured in a shooting along a Mardi Gras parade route.

New Orleans police spokesman Bob Young says the shootings were reported near the Garden District about 1:40 p.m. after the last major parade of the celebration had ended. Truck floats that follow the Rex parade were going by when gunfire broke out.

Two suspects are in custody and three weapons believed used in the shooting have been recovered.

The victims were taken to local hospitals. Young says the infant was grazed by a bullet and not seriously hurt.
