Mardi Gras Celebration Interrupted

The New Orleans Police Department are investigating the shooting deaths of two men just a couple of miles from Mardi Gras activities. A double shooting in New Orleans near the parade route on Mardi Gras injured two men -- one critically -- and left nearby revelers scrambling.

Three people were killed and four wounded in three shooting incidents during Mardi Gras festivities in New Orleans. Police released the surveillance image of the suspected shooter late Tuesday, and are seeking the public's help in identifying him.

The person shot in the head was "coherent and talking" before he was taken to a hospital by EMS.

The shooting on Union Street, about a half block from the parade route, was one of two shootings in the immediate vicinity of Mardi Gras celebrations Tuesday afternoon. About an hour later, a 30-year-old man was shot near the intersection of St. Charles Avenue and Second Street. He later died from his injuries.
