Superintendent Ronal Serpas says that at least 12 people were shot at a Mother’s Day second-line parade in the 7th Ward.

The youngest victim in the shooting was 10 years old.

Police say there were 200 people at the corner where shots rang out, and 300 to 400 people at the second line in all.

There were about 10 cops on the scene trying to control the second line when the shooting happened. There were reportedly two different guns involved.
