Gunfire injures 9 people on Bourbon Street in New Orleans

Posted: Updated:
(CNN) -- Gunfire struck nine people on Bourbon Street in New Orleans early Sunday, police spokesman Frank Robertson said.

The shooting happened at 2:45 a.m. in the French Quarter, CNN affiliate WDSU reported. Initial reports indicated that seven people were injured in the incident.

The victims were taken to a local hospital. One is in critical condition, while another went into surgery; the other seven are in stable condition and suffered non-life-threatening injuries, Robertson said. The victim in critical condition is an unidentified woman, and the condition of the victim in surgery is unknown at this time.

Police are developing suspect information and are currently processing a lot of information in the case, but they have not yet established a motive for the shooting, Robertson said.

The 700 block, where the shooting occurred, is a popular gathering place for tourists and revelers, where many of them pack bars and clubs between St. Peter and St. Ann Streets. Crowds often spill into the streets.

The scene is around the corner from other famed attractions, such as jazz concert venue Preservation Hall and the popular bar Pat O'Brien's.

CNN's Carma Hassan and Jareen Imam contributed to this story.
