Police: 9 injured during Bourbon Street shooting

From the Associated Press:

 The police chief in New Orleans says the early-morning shooting in the French Quarter was carried out by two men who "got angry at each other and shot at each other."

The gunfire left nine people wounded, including one in critical condition.

The shooting took place on Bourbon Street, just two blocks from historic Jackson Square.

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.
