NEW ORLEANS -- Police have released new video that shows a brawl on Canal Street that ended with a woman getting shot.

Authorities are asking for help identifying persons of interest in the video in connection with the brawl and the shooting. As several people fight in the video, the gunshot can be heard in the background.

The incident occurred in the 700 block of Canal Street and police said they believe it may have had something to do with a social media set of posts that stated, "CANAL DAY 4 pm until, Saturday May 17, 2014."

Police said a fight broke out inside of a McDonald’s at that location and that the restaurant asked those involved to leave. Witnesses said that at some point in the fracas, a young man pulled the gun and fired it in no particular direction.

The woman suffered a graze wound and sought refuge in a nearby shop.

Anyone with information is asked to call the 8th District at 504-658-6080.
