A King parade shooting close to a New Orleans intersection has left five people injured. The shooting happened on Monday after a Martin Luther King Jr. parade had passed through earlier. According to police, the victims were all around the ages of 17 and 18 years old. The injuries the teenagers sustained are not believed to be life-threatening, says FOX News.
The car containing the shooter was caught on a surveillance video from a nearby store. The video shows a white car driving up and then shooting at the teens from the car's sunroof.
After the shooting, the car drove off before police could arrive on the scene. The shooting occurred just an hour after the King parade had passed by.
Around 1 p.m. shots were heard and the car reportedly sped off in the direction of the Mississippi River, said New Orleans Police Supt. Ronal Serpas. Police are investigating the King Parade shooting and they say the shooters were possibly in a Nissan or Pontiac.
