9 people were injured and one killed early Sunday morning in a shooting in New Orleans' historic French Quarter.

The tourist district was bustling with people following the earlier Bayou Classic football game.

Authorities are not sure what motivated the shooting; however, two individuals - one of whom was a victim in the shooting - were taken into custody on scene related to weapons charges. It was unclear if one or both of the arrestees were involved in the shooting.
