According to police, 10 men, 7 women and two childrena boy and girl, both 10-years-oldwere all hit with bullets yesterday afternoon. The children are in stable condition, but two adults required surgery.

Police are searching for answers. "Detectives are conducting interviews, retrieving any surveillance video in the area and, of course, collecting all evidence. This is an extremely unusual occurrence, and we're confident that we will make swift arrests," said New Orleans Police Department spokesman Remi Braden.
