Shots Ring Out At New Orleans Parade Leaving 19 Injured

Abdul Aziz believes he was standing right next to a shooter Sunday when gunmen opened fire at a Mother’s Day parade in New Orleans, injuring 19 people.

“Everyone around me, except me, was shot,” he said. “I was pretty fortunate to get away.”

Aziz, 33, a photojournalist, was at the second-line parade when gunfire broke out at the corner of Frenchman Street and North Villere Street.

Second-line parades, which involve dancing and brass bands, are a New Orleans tradition. They happen most every Sunday, except during the hottest months in summer, according to Aziz.
