Five Shot Along New Orleans MLK Parade Route

Someone missed the message of peaceful resistance, methinks:

Five people were wounded in a shooting at the intersection of LaSalle Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard on Monday afternoon.

Officials said none of the injuries were life-threatening.

Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas was among those who responded to the scene. He said that a group of six teenage boys or young men was gathered outside a small grocery when a late model white sedan - possibly a Nissan or Pontiac - drove past. Shots were fired from inside that vehicle.

The car sped off in the direction of the Mississippi River.
