New Orleans Police have developed a person of interest in the weekend gunfight on Bourbon Street that left 10 injured. Police asked the public for help in identifying the person, whose image is seen on surveillance video released by police Monday.

At least two suspects wounded the bystanders in an exchange of gunfire at about 2:45 a.m. on the 700 block of Bourbon Street in the French Quarter, according to a statement on Sunday by the New Orleans Police Department.

Five remain hospitalized at LSU Hospital, one critical, the others stable. Police initially said nine people were hit. On Monday, they added a 10th victim, a man who had gone to a police station in a neighboring district about 12 hours after the shootings to report that he had been shot.
