NEW YORK, May 13 (Itar-Tass) - Investigators do not think the shooting during the parade held in New Orleans, Louisiana, in honor of Mother's Day was a terrorist attack, Mary Beth Romig, spokesperson of the FBI's local department, said Sunday. She said that was an ordinary act of street violence in New Orleans.

In one of the streets of New Orleans, Louisiana, unidentified gunmen on Sunday opened fire on people who were watching the traditional parade in honor of the Mother Day. The parade is held in the United States on the second Sunday of May.

According to the latest data, 19 people: 10 men, seven women, and two children - a boy and a ten-year-old girl - received wounds as a result of the attack by unidentified offenders on the parade procession. The condition of two of the victims is estimated as serious. The health of the children is out of jeopardy.

According to eyewitness accounts, police mounted a search for three suspects.
