19 Shot in New Orleans Mother's Day Parade 05/13/2013


It was a thoughtful Mother’s Day Parade, until as many as three gunmen open fire on the paraders. So far none of the 19 wounded have died.

“Mobile phone video taken in the aftermath of the shooting shows victims lying on the ground, blood on the pavement and others bending over to comfort them. A witness told CBS affiliate WWLTV she was at home when she heard the gunshots, and then opened her door to find two bloodied men on her porch,” reported CBS.

“The woman, Bernadette Tyler, reportedly said she did her best to help the two victims until responders arrived. “Me and my daughter did the best thing we can to revive them, and I think we helped save another life today," Tyler said, the station reports.

Police have pictures that should help identify the gunmen.
