Three dead and seven hospitalized after a shooting in New Orleans

People react at the scene of a shooting in New Orleans on Saturday

"There is no place in New Orleans for this kind of violence", New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell said on her official Twitter page.

In 2014, The Advocate reported two women who were cousins of Hankton were accused of shocking a third woman with a stun gun and hitting her with a auto.

The shooting left a trail of injured and dead as well as a trail of tears as family members and friends shrieked and screamed with grief and pain at the latest carnage on New Orleans streets. "We need more than anything for people to come forward to help the NOPD right now solve this case". "A lot of people saw and heard what happened".

The seven victims - including five men and two women - remained in "varying degrees of condition, some more critical than others", New Orleans EMS Director Dr. Emily Nichols said on Saturday night.

Crimestoppers can be reached at 504.822.1111 or through the website.
