NEW ORLEANS - New Orleans police have identified a 20-year-old man as a person of interest in the shooting that injured 10 people early Sunday on Bourbon Street.

They're asking for help finding Justin Odom and an associate named Josh or Joe, also described as a person of interest.

Officer Hilal (HEE-lahl) Williams, a police spokeswoman, says Odom also is wanted on warrants out of Jefferson Parish. She doesn't know his home town.

Police say Odom was identified from photographs released earlier.

They're asking the public to send any photos or videos either of the shooting or taken early Sunday in the French Quarter to NOPDTIPSnola.gov.

Williams says a 21-year-old Hammond woman remains in critical condition.

LSU Interim Hospital spokeswoman Siona LaFrance says an Australian woman has been released from the hospital.
