Photos: 9 injured in Bourbon Street shooting Photos: 9 injured in Bourbon Street shooting Advocate staff photo by ELIOT KAMENITZ--New Orleans Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas holds a press conference at Bourbon and Orleans in New Orleans, La. Sunday, June 29, 2014 near the site where 9 people were shot earlier that morning. Advocate story Comments The crowd on Bourbon and Orleans streets was light and meandering early Sunday morning. A man pleaded for beads to be tossed to him from a balcony, while others sipped beer and chatted. Then, without warning, two gunmen sprayed the corner with a shower of bullets. People scattered in a panic. Some crawled or tripped over each other into open storefronts, and at least one man took cover behind a trash can to escape the gunfire. One victim, apparently struck, tumbled into the gutter and rolled about, agonizing in pain.
