NEW ORLEANS - The head of the New Orleans Police Department says investigators have made significant progress in their investigation of a Mother's Day shooting that wounded 19 people.

Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas said at a news conference on Monday that information began flowing into the police department after a $10,000 reward was announced Sunday night. The shooting earlier in the day shattered the festive atmosphere at a neighborhood parade.

No arrests have been made, and police are working to figure out if the shootings were the work of a lone gunman, or more than one. Investigators initially said three suspects were seen fleeing.

Serpas implored the public to continue to turn over information.
