NEW ORLEANS - The New Orleans police have identified a suspect in a shooting last weekend at a playground that wounded 17 people.
In a statement Friday, police said they are looking for 32-year-old Joseph "Moe" Allen, who is believed to be one of the suspects involved in the Sunday shooting. He will be charged with 17 counts of attempted first degree murder once he is located.
The police believe several other suspects were involved in the shooting and are asking people to come forward with any information they might have.
Two groups of people opened fire at each other in a crowded park as hundreds of people gathered for a block party and a music video taping.
No one was killed but seventeen people were wounded.
