Two people along the St. Charles parade route near Erato Street were shot in the leg by a teen gunman who was quickly arrested Thursday night, police said.

The victims were in the Wendy’s parking lot around 8 p.m. as the Krewe of Chaos rolled past when the shots rang out, according to reporting by Tania Dall of our partners at WWL-TV. The teen suspect was quickly apprehended by police and the gun was recovered, police said.

The shooting scene was about a dozen blocks down St. Charles from the site where two bystanders were shot along the route in 2009.
