Crime SceneNEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans police say that a dozen people have been shot during a Mother’s Day second-line parade.

Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas told reporters at least 12 people were shot during the parade in the city’s 7th Ward.

Police say the incident happened about 2 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of Frenchmen and Villere streets.

The Times-Picayune reports there were about 200 people at the event when gunfire erupted.
