I have found new information on this and just wanted to update this piece. The New Orleans Police Department announced today via their Facebook page that they have a 19 year old suspect in custody in connection to the shooting that happened on Mother’s day. Akein Scott, allegedly opened fire during a Mother’s Day Parade on Sunday which resulted in 19 non life-threatening injuries, among the injured are ten men, seven women, and two ten year old children, one boy and one girl. Three of those who were injured are still being hospitalized and said to be in critical condition. Thoughts and prayers to all involved in this horrible act! At the time of the shooting Scott was out on a $15,000 bail for gun and drug charges.
You can find my original post on this horrific end to what should have been a day to celebrate those women who are most important in our lives right here!
