The incident took place on Canal St between Bourbon and Chartres streets at about 3:30 am local time. Police said on their Twitter feed that “one suspect had been apprehended near the scene.” They later shared another tweet that said, “An individual was detained near the scene. However, their possible involvement in this incident remains under investigation. No arrests have been made at this time. The investigation remains ongoing. ‪#NOPDAlert”‬

As of right now, two people are said to be in critical condition, with shots to the chest and torso respectively. No fatalities have been reported.

Police Superintendent Shaun Ferguson as saying officers on the 700 block of Canal Street at the time believed that they were being fired upon. “Unfortunately, there were so many people out here we were unable to determine who was actually firing shots at the time. We do not know how it started.”

Thousands of people have also been drawn to the city for the Bayou Classic football game traditionally played on Thanksgiving weekend between Southern University and Grambling State University.
