Gunmen opens fire on crowd outside New Orleans bar, 3 dies, 7 injured
Police were today searching for two gunmen who opened fire on a crowd outside a New Orleans bar, killing three people and wounding seven others.
Police said they responded to reports of a shooting yesterday at a "daiquiri shop" about three miles from the southern US city's famed French Quarter.
Detectives "determined that two unknown armed subjects believed to be wearing hooded sweatshirts allegedly approached a group of people standing outside of a business and opened fire, striking 10 of the individuals", and then fled, a police statement said.
"This has to be personal," he said.
"Whoever did this, you should know that the law enforcement takes it personal and we're coming for you." The victims -- two males and a female -- "were pronounced dead at the scene," police spokesman Aaron Looney said in a statement.
Seven additional gunshot victims -- five males and two females -- were rushed to area hospitals either in private vehicles or aboard ambulances.
The motive for the shooting was unknown.
"We will find that out during the investigation," Harrison said. "It was very intentional but we don't know right now that its gang related."
