Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas said four other people were arrested and charged with harboring the brothers.

The wounded at the parade included two 10-year-old children, a boy and a girl. Surveillance footage captured a man stepping into the street, opening fire on the crowd and running away.

On Monday, Serpas named Akein Scott as a suspect, flashed a photo of him and warned: "We know more about you than you think." He said Scott had previous arrests on gun and drug charges and was free on $15,000 bail.

The victims were marching in what is known as a second line parade, common in New Orleans: A brass band plays while marching in the streets, while a "second line" of people follows the band, celebrating.
