New Orleans Halloween, Violence marred the night of Halloween in New Orleans, two men were killed and more than a dozen people were wounded in five separate shootings, including incidents on Bourbon Street in the famous French Quarter of the city and Canal Street by.
A 25-year-old New Orleans man died in hospital after being shot several times near the corner of Bourbon and St. Louis streets on Tuesday morning, the official said Hilal Williams of the New Orleans Police Department. Seven other people were injured in the shooting.
A man of 19 years died and three others were not seriously injured in another shooting that occurred an hour later at the corner of Canal Street and University Place, Williams said.
Police arrested 24-year-old Baltimore Malcolm moments after the incident and have booked a charge of first degree murder and three counts of attempted first-degree murder, Williams said.
The shooting occurred in the middle of the night of Halloween revelry in the French Quarter and parts of Canal Street.
Police officers patrolling the downtown area were nearby when the fire broke out on Canal Street and chased Malcolm and another suspect on foot. The second suspect was later released. Williams said the incident apparently followed by a discussion.
Williams said police were reviewing video from surveillance cameras to try to determine what sparked the violence in the French Quarter. The injured victims in the age range 19 to 50, police said.
Police have made no arrests in connection with that incident and the names of the victims have yet been released pending notification of their families.
In addition to these incidents, three shootings occurred at night in residential areas other a few miles east of the resorts.
Williams said police responded to a shooting at a man who was wounded in the leg on Monday night. Another man was wounded in both legs in a shooting Tuesday morning, and two people were wounded in the head or neck of another shooting that occurred on Tuesday morning.
