A man was shot Thursday evening (May 30) in the French Quarter near the intersection of Iberville and Bienville streets, according to the NOPD.

Paramedics picked up a man and placed him into ambulance at Bourbon and Bienville streets around 7 p.m.

Dozens of tourists, restaurant workers and others watched as investigators examined the scene.

A series of tourists, some clutching bags from local gift shops, approached an officer at the crime-scene tape stretched across Iberville Street, near Bourbon Street, asked for directions to various local spots.

Police taped off Bourbon from Bienville to at least Iberville.
