"One victim was a walk-in at a local hospital".

A total of 11 people were injured early Sunday morning following a shooting that took place near New Orleans' French Quarter.

Two individuals are in critical condition.

No arrests had been made as of about 6:30 a.m. (7:30 a.m. ET), according to police. They managed to detain an individual but it is unclear if that person had any involvement with the shooting.

Police say investigators are now in the process of "gathering evidence and information to identify the person (s) responsible in this incident, as well as motive".

No one has yet to be charged in the shooting, cops said. He said officers at first thought they were being fired upon since the shots rang out so close to them.

No officers were injured, Ferguson said.

Police said they quickly responded to the incident as extra patrols were on duty for an annual Thanksgiving weekend university football game in the city. GVA defines "mass shootings" as incidents in which four or more people are shot or killed, not including the shooter.

The shooting address provided by police is a brief walk from the popular Bourbon Street, where tourists are known to congregate.

Louisiana State Police and federal officials were assisting in the investigation.
