16-year old New Orleans boy shot two men in the leg

A 16-year old boy has been arrested for shooting two teens along the Mardi Gras parade route in New Orleans, before the parade.

From the article:
Police say two men were shot in the leg during a New Orleans parade that's part of the run-up to Mardi Gras, and a 16-year-old boy was arrested.

The victims' wounds were not considered serious. Meanwhile, the teen-ager was booked on a charge of carrying an illegal firearm. Investigators say he ditched a gun into a trash can as officers chased him, but they recovered it.
Police say more than one person may have been involved in Thursday night's shooting, and they are continuing to investigate.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
