A shooting broke out in New Orleans on Monday moments after a parade celebrating Martin Luther King Day passed through the Central City neighborhood, the Times-Picayune reports.

The gun violence occurred shortly after 1 p.m. -- about 30 minutes after the parade -- at the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and LaSalle Street, according to WWLTV.

Five people suffered non-fatal injuries in the incident, according to reports. Authorities do not believe the violence was related to the parade.

Police spokeswoman Remi Braden said that the victims are all 17 or 18 years old. She said that a white car drove up to the victims as a passenger fired a weapon from the vehicle's sunroof, according to the Associated Press.

"It's the state of affairs in our nation that young men do not heed the words of Martin Luther King Jr.," NOPD Superintendent Ronal Serpas said of the incident, according to the Times-Picayune.

Police expect to release surveillance footage of the incident.

The car was described as "white" (HATE CRIME!), but the shooters were "young men".

Makes sense.

The best business in the ghetto is planting them naggers. As long as you accept EBT cards and have payment plans (plus interest) you're guaranteed bodies.

Once again, shooting happens and the cowardly media cunts tell you more about the car than the shooters.

Typical behavior as expected. Just wait until a bunch of white folks get shot, then someone will give a shit.

I don't think that block went underwater. It may have had a small bit of water but the city has been demoingold ghettos and building new "mixed income" housing.

It's fucked up how a halfmile towards the river you have upper-middle class whites. I worked right on the line where MLK begins for a few days two years ago. It included overnight work. Homeless crackheads at night... well dressed pros driving through it during the day.The kind ofarea that tricks tourists into thinking they're safe because you can walk through it during the day.
