One suspect was in custody Tuesday and another was being sought in connection with a Thanksgiving weekend gunfight that injured 12 people at the edge of New Orleans’ famous French Quarter.

Both suspects were traced to St. Mary Parish in south-central Louisiana, where the arrest was made Tuesday. Police chief Shaun Ferguson said the two are believed to have been involved in an ongoing feud in St. Mary.

The article goes on to state the following:

That feud resulted in gunfire — in front of a parked police unit with several officers nearby — when the two encountered each other early on Sunday, Dec. 1. It happened on busy Canal Street amid crowds in town for the annual Bayou Classic college football game.

“During a press conference Tuesday, NOPD Chief Shaun Ferguson named Stafford Starks, 21, and LaBryson Polidore, 22 as the two men who shot 12 people where Canal Street and St. Charles Avenue meet,” WWLTV reported. “Starks was arrested Tuesday morning in St. Mary Parish, and he faces 8 charges of attempted murder for the shooting, police said. Wounded during the shooting and still at-large, Polidore is wanted for 10 counts of attempted murder, police said.”

Ferguson said more arrests are possible.
