New Orleans police at the site of the shooting. The 10-year-old victim suffered a graze wound.

New Orleans cops are hunting for three suspects in a shooting spree Sunday that left at least 19 injured at a Mother's Day parade.

Many of the victims were grazed, and most injuries are non-life threatening, The Associated Press reported. The number of hurt has continued to rise throughout the afternoon Sunday after original reports indicated a dozen were injured in the 2 p.m. shooting.

The FBI said the shooting was "street violence" and not linked to terrorism.

Nine of the victims were taken to the city’s University Hospital, with three or four requiring surgery, New Orleans police said. At least three of those shot were in critical condition, CBS affiliate WWL-TV reported. At least two remained in surgery Sunday night.

The victims included 10 men and seven women. The youngest victims, a 10-year-old girl and boy, suffered graze wounds, according to , and are in good condition. Another person was injured in a fall during the commotion and was taken to the hospital.

The website said there were about 200 people gathered at the intersection of Frenchmen and Villere streets in the 7th Ward — a neighborhood ravaged by Hurricane Katrina — when the shots rang out around 2 p.m. About 400 were participating in the three block procession in the city's 7th Ward, where about 60% of the neighborhood's pre-Katrina population has returned to live.
