Shots fired during the countdown to Mardi Gras wounded two men and two women and sent people running on Bourbon Street.
Four shots rang out rapidly Saturday night, followed by screams as some in the crowd staggered into one another and a nearby wall, video taken by a bystander and released by police showed. Authorities said in an email Sunday that an argument involving one of the victims led to the shooting. They described the video — released early Sunday — as showing two men leaving the argument and returning with a third before the gunfire erupted.
No arrests were immediately reported, and police said they were seeking the three men who fled.
