SLIDELL, La. (AP) — Slidell police say an unknown number of people were shot by guns fired into a crowd during a fight as bars were closing in Slidell’s bar district.
Detective Daniel Seuzeneau (soo-zuh-noh) says police cannot confirm how many people were shot or their conditions. He just says multiple people were shot.
He says they were taken from Olde Town Slidell to hospitals in Slidell and the New Orleans metro area.
Seuzeneau says more information will be released when details become available — probably this afternoon.
