New Orleans - The mayor of New Orleans is calling on people who were in a park where a shootout erupted and wounded 16 people to come forward with information.

Mayor Mitch Landrieu said late on Sunday in comments aired by WWL-TV that people need to come forward with information so that police can do their job.

Landrieu was speaking alongside police chief Michael Harrison at the park where the gunfire erupted earlier.

Landrieu said the shooting is not something that can be tolerated in the city.

No one was killed in the Sunday evening shooting that happened as hundreds of people had gathered at a local park. Police say two groups of people in the crowd opened fire on each other before running away.
