Police: ‘Feud’ led to mass French Quarter shooting

July 04 2021 12:00 am

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The New Orleans police chief says some type of personal feud is believed to have sparked a mass shooting that injured 10 people at the edge of the historic French Quarter.

Police Chief Shaun Ferguson stressed that the early Sunday morning shooting was not an act of terrorism. He said the investigation indicates the feud involved people from outside the New Orleans area.

But Ferguson had little more information at Monday’s news conference. No suspect has been identified and it’s unclear if any of the victims were targets.

There is a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and indictment in the case.

The shooting took place as thousands visited the city for the Bayou Classic, the annual Thanksgiving weekend football game between Grambling State and Southern University.
