Six injured during parade against guns in USA

America's growing concerns about cases of armed violence became the focus of the meeting in honor of Martin Luther King, who preached the principles of non-violent struggle for civil rights and who was killed at age 39. Ironically, in the course of events dedicated to King, six people received gunshot wounds.

Five persons were injured in gunfire in New Orleans, where the parade took place. According to officials, all the victims are teenagers from 17 to 18 years. Their wounds were not life-threatening.

A security camera in the store, which the teenagers dropped by, filmed the white car. A passenger is seen appearing from the hatch of the vehicle and firing several shots, according to The Washington Post. After the incident, the area was cordoned off.

A similar incident occurred in Jackson, the capital of Mississippi. The police are looking for the assailant, who fired his gun at a 23-year old man during the parade. According to officials, the shooting occurred on the territory, where the parade was held, not directly in the path of the movement. The victim was taken to the Medical Center of the University of Mississippi with a wound in his chest.
