A New Orleans shooting that left nine injured and one dead early Sunday morning has left the city's mayor decrying the violence there as 'out of control'.
Ten people aged between 20 and 37 - eight men and two women - were shot after gunfire broke out on the city's famous Bourbon Street, at the intersection of Iberville Street, around 1:30am, police said. One male victim died.
Mayor Mitch Landrieu described the shocking scene as 'totally unacceptable.' 'The violence continues to spin out of control with people brandishing weapons whenever they think they can,' he told WDSU. 'It's really unfortunate.'
