Surveillance video from New Orleans show a Mother's Day parade turned violent after a gunman opened fire on the crowd.
Orleans police searched on Monday (May 13) for the gunmen who wounded 19 people, including two children, at a Mother's Day parade, a police spokesman said.
Ten men, seven women, and a girl and a boy both age 10, were hit when gunmen opened fire at the parade on Sunday. Police said they were looking for three suspects, adding that a motive for the shooting was unknown.
A police spokesman said on Monday the investigation was continuing. "There's nothing new to report," he said.
Two victims underwent surgery and the children were grazed but in good condition, police said on Sunday. It was unclear if the victims were marching or watching the parade.
Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas has said a witness reported hearing two different types of gunshots, indicating two weapons were involved.
Violent crime in New Orleans ranks above the national average in FBI surveys.
