“Shots were fired with different guns,” a police statement said.
“Immediately after the shooting our officers saw three suspects running from the scene.”
The statement said 10 men, seven women, a 10-year-old boy and a 10-year-old girl were wounded by gunfire. FBI spokeswoman Mary Beth Romig said they had “no reason to believe it was an act of terror, just street violence”. ‘Drumbeat of violence’ more
Another False Flag Attack?
Always watch the first new reports and official statements in a false flag attack, because this is where the perpetrators typically make their mistakes. This is proving to be the case in New Orleans in the wake of today’s Mother’s Day shooting in New Orleans.
The Unfolding of the Event
New Orleans police are searching for three suspects after at least 19 people were shot during a Mother’s Day second-line parade in the 7th Ward.
The FBI said that the shooting appeared to be “street violence” and wasn’t linked to terrorism. Fox News of New Orleans is reporting that FBI spokeswoman. Mary Romig, has stated that federal investigators have no indication that the shooting was an act of terrorism. “It’s strictly an act of street violence in New Orleans.”
First Reports from the scene indicated that at first 17 people were wounded, now that number has been revised upward to 19. The victims included a pair of 10-year-old’s, both a boy and a girl. There were 200 people near the corner where shots first rang out, and 300 to 400 were at the even in all.
At the time of this report, there have been no fatalities, and police say most of the injuries are non-life threatening. New Orleans Police Department, Superintendent Ronald Serpas, stated that he believes three gunman were involved. Serpas promises that “We will find them, and we will bring them to custody and will make them pay for the crime they committed today. I think what frustrates all of us is the selfishness of some people, and I think what frustrates all of us is that the great culture of this city sometimes stumbles a bit because of the selfish behavior of some people.” What selfish behavior, Superintendent Serpas?
