New Orleans police are searching for three suspects Sunday after at least 19 people were shot during a Mothers Day parade.
Police spokeswoman Remi Braden said in an email that many of the victims were grazed and most of the wounds weren't life-threatening. No deaths were reported.
The FBI said that the shooting appeared to be "street violence" and wasn't linked to terrorism.
The victims included 10 men, seven women, a boy and a girl. The children, both 10 years old, were grazed and in good condition. Police said at least two people were in surgery Sunday night.
Mary Beth Romig, a spokeswoman for the FBI in New Orleans, said federal investigators have no indication that the shooting was an act of terrorism. "It's strictly an act of street violence in New Orleans," she said.
Chief Serpas announced in a press conference earlier on Sunday that the youngest victim is believed to be a 10-year-old girl. Police say she suffered a graze wound, WVUE Fox 8 reported.
Officers were interspersed with the marchers, which is routine for such events. As many as 400 people joined in the procession that stretched for about 3 blocks, though only half that many were in the immediate vicinity of the shooting, Serpas said.

They would certainly not want to create a panic...
I mean terrorists....could be any where, right?
Yes they do want to create a pannix. then can lock down a city like they did around Boston. and then pat down all the ladies in all the houses
Yes they( the gov and media) do want to create a panic. then can lock down a city like they did around Boston. and then pat down all the ladies in all the houses, and make everyone come out with their hands up
Our service men and women are on the front line
all over the world. For the Islamics the front line
by the way I hate Islam as it is the lies of a pedophile
I wonder if they have a fathers day parade?
I’m guessing there would be no men to participate...
Is FEMA on its way to NO yet?
I had a nightmare experience in this beautiful city. The cops are no better than the villains!
It would be very difficult to lock down NOLA.
Remember the old joke?
What's the most confusing day in the ghetto?
Sure can, by golly! Even in the White House.
No I don’t agree with the lock down.
I think they are terrified of what happens when
terrorists continue to strike on our streets.
Serpas came to Nashville for about 6 or so years. He played the statistics lying game. He looks like he has added about 40 more lbs. He was not liked by any officer or patrolman as he was a joke to them.
