No other parade-goers were injured.

Quincy Johnson fell to the ground after being shot, which is where police found him.
Both men were transported to the Thibodaux Regional Medical Center for treatment. They are both in stable condition.
The parade was re-routed to avoid contamination of the crime scene and to insure the safety of our community partners.
