SLIDELL, La. (AP) - Slidell police say a second person has died by guns fired into a crowd during a fight at closing time in Slidell's bar district.
Police said eight people were shot. One died and another who was initially listed in critical condition later died Thursday morning. Police say the other six are in stable or guarded condition. The victims were taken to hospitals in Slidell and the New Orleans metro area.
Detective Daniel Seuzeneau (soo-zuh-noh) says police have not released the names of any of the victims.
Seuzeneau says police aren't releasing any further details at this time because the investigation is sensitive. Police have scheduled a 2 p.m. news conference to provide updates on the situation.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Slidell police at 985-643-3131
