Police: 4 wounded in shooting on Bourbon Street
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Four people were shot on a packed Bourbon Street, sending people running as revelers partied Saturday night amid the countdown to Mardi Gras, police and bystanders said. But the party resumed in force hours later as crowds thronged the iconic French Quarter street following the shooting.
Two males and two females were wounded just before 9:30 p.m. local time, New Orleans police spokesman Frank B. Robertson told The Associated Press. He said one male was in critical condition and had undergone surgery, while the other three were in stable condition. He did not release their ages.
Robertson said detectives were working to identify a suspect and determine a motive. He did not have any other details.
"They're just piecing together what happened," he added.

And then there is this line at the end of the article:
"Asked if it was frightening, she responded: "Not really. We were just locked in a bar and we weren't going to let this one incident wreck our party."
No. Of course not. Only 4 people shot; one of them critically.
