NOLA Police: Man shot along parade route dies
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- New Orleans police say a man has died after a shooting along the Mardi Gras parade route. That brings shooting deaths Tuesday in New Orleans to three, with five other people wounded.
Police say one man died at a hospital hours after an afternoon argument along the traditional Mardi Gras parade route, and two were killed and three wounded in a shooting outside a party Tuesday night.
Police did not identify any of the victims.
Police say the day's first shooting left a man in critical condition with a head wound and a boy in stable condition with a leg wound. A news release late Tuesday said the man reportedly was talking coherently before he was taken to the hospital.
