Police: 9 injured during Bourbon Street shooting

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans Police say nine people have been injured during a shooting on celebrated Bourbon Street.

Police spokesman Frank Robertson says the incident happened early Sunday. Seven people were hospitalized in stable condition, and a female was listed in critical condition. Another victim's condition was not available.

Bourbon Street is New Orleans' most famous street, a nightly swirl of bright neon and happy tourists with beverage in hand. A blend of jazz joints, strip clubs, bars and restaurants, the French Quarter's Bourbon Street has everything from four-star dining to sex shows.
