NEW ORLEANS — Three people were shot following a graduation ceremony for Morris Jeff High School on the Xavier University campus Tuesday afternoon.
Police say the victims were taken to hospital by EMS. Their conditions are not known as of Tuesday afternoon.
Investigators say that a person was detained.
People who were at the graduation said they were there to experience one of the proudest moments of a lifetime when the shooting began, marring the event.
“We just heard gunshots,” said one of the graduating seniors. “They were fighting. My cousin said, ‘they’re fighting over there, let’s go.’ Then I heard gunshots.”
“One of my friends’ grandma got shot right in the middle of the street and she didn’t have anything to do with it,” said another graduate. “She got shot in the head. She’s in critical condition.”
Councilman J. P. Morrell tweeted similar sentiments.
“This should’ve been one of the happiest days in these kids’ lives. Now all of their hard work is being overshadowed by another senseless act of gun violence.”
On May 20, three people were shot after a graduation ceremony for Hammond High School outside of Southeastern Louisiana’s campus.
