New Orleans Police say nine people have been injured during a shooting on celebrated Bourbon Street.
Police spokesman Frank Robertson says the incident happened early Sunday. Seven people were hospitalized in stable condition, and a female was listed in critical condition. Another victim's condition was not available.
Bourbon Street is New Orleans' most famous street, a nightly swirl of bright neon and happy tourists with beverages in hand. The French Quarter's Bourbon Street is a blend of jazz joints, strip clubs, bars and four-star restaurants. Marie Laveau's House of Voodoo is located on the corner of St Ann. Reverend Zombie's House of Voodoo is down St. Peter Street from the site of the shooting.
