Chaos Reigns: 2 Shot on Mardi Gras Parade Route
Once again, Mardi Gras was unfortunately not a reason to stop the violence. As the Knights of Chaos were rolling on St. Charles just before 8 p.m., two men were shot near the corner of Carnival's prime thoroughfare and Erato St., New Orleans police said. The two men, ages 17 and 19, were shot near the corner of Erato St. Injuries were described as minor and non-life-threatening. According to a press release, police stationed near the parade route heard gunshots, and saw a 16-year-old man book it from the scene.
