The victim later died at a hospital. Witnesses described a fusillade of bullets. Gunfire struck one boy in the "head area" and the other had a leg wound, police said in a news release.

The third shooting began as people celebrated Tuesday night at a house party in the Lower 9th Ward, about 3 kilometres from the parade route.

The driver managed to drive to a nearby gas station before two of them died from their wounds.
