NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans Police say a second suspect wanted in Saturday night's quadruple shooting during Mardi Gras celebrations on Bourbon Street has been arrested.

The Times-Picayune ( ) reports that 22-year-old Brandon Brown turned himself in at 5 p.m. Tuesday.

Police say Brown was booked with four counts of attempted first-degree murder for his part in the shooting, which happened in the middle of Mardi Gras revelry and left four people hospitalized.

Police also have arrested 23-year-old Deron Bridgewater in connection with the shooting. Bridgewater turned himself in to authorities Monday after he saw himself on television. It isn't clear if either suspect has an attorney.
