NEW ORLEANS (February 10, 2013)--New Orleans police released a bystanders' video Sunday of what they say was an argument involving some people in a Bourbon Street throng raucously celebrating ahead of Mardi Gras when shots ring out, followed by screams.
Police spokesman Frank B. Robertson said the shooting in the crowded French Quarter just days before Fat Tuesday left four people wounded, including a male victim shot in the abdomen, thigh and pelvic area.
He said one other male and two other females had lesser gunshot wounds.
The footage showed many partying in costumes before what police described as an argument between the most seriously injured male and two other men.
There are four rapid shots and then screams.
Authorities have not said if they have made any arrests, saying they sought the public's help.
