Ten people were shot, one fatally in New Orleans, according to CNN.

The shooting occurred during a four-day parade for Thanksgiving weekend on Sunday morning near the western edge of the French Quarter.

According to CNN, two women and eight men aged between 20 and 37 were shot.

One man died from his injuries.

"This was not the place or time to bring firearms to the Bayou Classic or any event," said Police Superintendent Michael Harrison, according to CNN affiliate WVUE. "This is not the place where something like this should happen."

Two men were arrested at the scene for carrying a weapon.

According to CNN, police do not know the motive for the shooting.
