Little is known. 2 suspects apprehended.

Dr. Jim Parry, 41, a surgeon, was with his two children on ladders catching beads from passing truck floats when he heard the shots. He turned around, saw a man lying in the middle of the street and ran to provide assistance. The man had been shot in the abdomen.

"He kept asking me, 'Was I shot? Was I shot?" Parry said.

Eventually the paramedics arrived and took over for the Air Force reservist, who will be deployed to Afghanistan this summer.

"Damn, this is more dangerous than Afghanistan," he said.

By early Tuesday evening, police booked the two suspects, who were apprehended at Carondelet and Second streets. Bouyelas said three guns were taken from the two men, identified as 20-year-old Mark Brooks and 18-year-old Louis Lazone. Each was booked with seven counts of attempted first-degree murder.

Later in the evening, police reported three other shootings: a man shot in the hip in the 900 block of North Tonti Street, a woman shot in the side in the 2600 block of Josephine Street and a man shot multiple times inside of a vehicle at Canal and North Galvez streets.
