NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Police say that two of the 19 people shot in New Orleans during a neighborhood Mother's Day parade were children.

A news release says that the wounded included 10 men, seven women, a boy and a girl. The children were both 10 years old.

The release says two people were in surgery Sunday. Many of the victims were grazed and most of the wounds were not life-threatening.

The FBI says that the shootings appear to be street violence, and not terrorism-related.

The shooting happened just before 2 p.m. Sunday during a second-line parade organized by the social club called The Original Big 7.
