7 shot in New Orleans

Seven people were shot Saturday night in New Orleans' French Quarter after a dispute between two men.

CNN reported that six of the victims were bystanders.

Authorities say they are still searching for the two gunmen.

One of the victims was a 17-year-old boy who was involved in the argument.

According to USA Today, the other victims' ages ranged from 15 to 50.

According to New Orleans police, no one was seriously injured.

Six of the victims, not including the boy involved in the argument, were treated for minor injuries and released from area hospitals.

The shooting took place after the French Quarter festival had ended for the night, police said.

Police said they were unsure whether the six bystander victims were from New Orleans or if they were just in town for the festival.

The shooting did not appear to have an effect on the festival Sunday as crowds still roamed through the streets of the French Quarter.
