NEW ORLEANS -- Our partners at The Gambit say one of their reporters is among the shooting victims at a Mother's Day second line where 19 people were wounded.
Deborah Cotton was in surgery late Sunday afternoon, but her condition is still unknown at his hour. She is in guarded but stable condition.
She was at the second line when the shots rang out. Cotton has covered second lines for the Gambit for years, and she covers New Orleans street culture on her website http://www.neworleansgoodgood.com/
Our thoughts and prayers are with her and all the victims.
You can watch an interview with her thoughts on crime in New Orleans here.
