    LA - At least 16 people shot during filming of music video at New Orleans park

    "The shooting happened just after 6 p.m. when about 500 people, including many children, had gathered at the park for the filming of a music video. It is believed to have started out as an argument, after which two people opened fire, including at least one person who fired into the crowd.

    Police were already en-route to the park to break up the fight, but the shooting occurred before officers arrived at the scene. NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison said the shooting may be gang-related, but it was not immediately clear whether any arrests had been made. Nearby streets have been closed by police.

    Multiple victims were seen at the park’s main building as ambulances raced to the scene."

    I'm really surprised there is not more media attention on this. That's a very big crime and I'm seeing nothing.

    It made the news here!

    'Mass Shooting' At New Orleans Play Area


    At least sixteen people have been taken to hospital after a mass shooting at a playground in New Orleans, according to US reports.

    It is understood that as many as 500 people were at the "Bunny Friend" park at the time of the attack, as a music video was being filmed.

    Tyler Gamble, a police spokesman, said officers had been on their way to the playground to break up a large crowd when gunfire erupted - reportedly between two groups who had been fighting.

    He explained that the 16 victims in hospital either suffered a "direct gunshot wound" or a graze wound, and that the full extent of their injuries is yet to be determined.

    No one was killed in the shooting.

    Thinking with all the violence, unrest and understandable paranoia due to the recent terrorists acts - a mass shooting of each other on US soil, might be seen as particularly disgraceful, stupid behavior at this time.
    imo, speculation.

    Well, it is on the news, but not to the level you would think. Sorry for not being clear. Thank God the shooter was a poor aim and no one was killed. Let's hope all 16 are small injuries.

    A machine gun, who the heck walks around with one of those?!A terrorist, imo.

    "New Orleans police Commander Chris Goodley, speaking in a video clip posted by the New Orleans Times-Picayune website, said the crowd at the park remained "orderly" after the shooting. "But we were trying to preserve the crime scene as best as we could and tend to the victims," he added.

    New Orleans Police Superintendent Michael Harrison also was quoted by the Times-Picayune as saying, "no one has died at this time."

    Three witnesses told the newspaper they saw a man with a silver-colored machine gun, and also heard more gunshots coming from within the crowd as he ran away. Several people were lying on the sidewalk after the shooting, it said.

    WVUE-TV said police believed the shooting stemmed from a fight."

    The 9th ward was hit so hard by Hurricane Katrina and IIRC, that ward has been slow to revitalize. The residents have suffered enough and then this.. WTH?

    Prayers sent up for those wounded and terrorized by this shooting.

    If it were one shooter at a school, movie theatre, mall, etc., it would be all over the news all over the country.

    Right! In high crime cities, the press doesn't care.
