Police Superintendent Michael Harrison said none of the victims was an intended target when two men began arguing and shooting early Sunday on Bourbon Street.

Harrison says the man killed was 25-year-old Demontris Toliver. He said those wounded did not suffer life-threatening injuries.

Police say the second suspect, who has not been identified, is still at large.

Authorities planned a news conference to announce details later Friday morning.
