Forums - General Discussion - 12 People Shot at Mother's Day Parade in New Orleans.

Quote:

CNN - Abdul Aziz believes he was standing right next to a shooter Sunday when gunmen opened fire at a parade in New Orleans, injuring 19 people.

"Everyone around me, except me, was shot," he said. "I was pretty fortunate to get away."
Aziz, 33, a photojournalist, was at the parade when shooting started at the corner of Frenchman Street and North Villere Street.

"We turned off of a main thoroughfare to a smaller residential street and that's when the shots rang out. I was standing, I believe, right next to the shooter. I saw muzzle flash, but unfortunately I didn't get a chance to see who the shooter was," he said.

People panicked and ran.

Aziz, who has worked in the Middle East, started taking pictures.

He sent those images to CNN iReport.

"It's a little jarring when you see these types of things on the home front," he said. "I'm sad. I love this city. We're plagued by crime, and it's just not getting better no matter what we do."

Remi Braden, a police spokeswoman, said that a young girl was among the 19 people who were injured. The girl suffered a graze wound to her side.

According to police, 19 people were injured in the shooting, including two children. Ten men and seven women were among the victims.

Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.

Exactly! Just like a good guy with a bomb in Boston!



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”
