Hearing delayed in Mother's Day shooting

Posted: Updated:

A hearing for one of two suspects arrested after gunfire during a neighborhood parade in New Orleans left 20 people hurt in May has been delayed.

Twenty-four-year-old Shawn Scott was set for what court records call a preliminary hearing in magistrate court Thursday morning.

Shawn Scott and his 19-year-old brother Akein (AYE'-kihn) Scott were arrested days after the shooting, which brought an abrupt and bloody end to a second-line parade on Mother's Day. Bond for each of them was set at $10 million.

A judge was expected to postpone the hearing until next Thursday.
