Twelve people have been shot during a Mother's Day parade in the US city of New Orleans, police say.
Police Supt Ronal Serpas told reporters that three or four people required surgery but no deaths are reported.
The victims included a 10-year-old girl who suffered a minor wound, he added.
It is unclear what sparked the shooting, which happened in the city's 7th Ward on Sunday afternoon. Police say two or three suspects were seen fleeing the area.
Police said that, as well as the 12 people with gunshot wounds, one person was injured in the ensuing commotion.
The incident happened at about 14:00 (19:00 GMT) at the intersection of Frenchmen and Villere streets.
Supt Serpas said about 200 people were in the area at the time.
"It appears that these two or three people, just for a reason unknown to us, started shooting at, towards, or in the crowd," he said.
"It was over in just a couple of seconds."
The shooting happened at what is known as a second-line parade - a loose procession in which people dance down the street often following a brass band.
