While many people tried to get away, others turned around, to see where the shots were coming from.
As of Monday morning, four of the victims remain in the hospital. Five have already been treated and discharged.
Police say nine of the 10 victims are from Louisiana while the other, a 21-year-old man, is from Mississippi.
The victim who died, 25-year-old Demontris Toliver, was an aspiring tattoo artist from Baton Rouge. Police said Toliver died while after being rushed to a nearby hospital.
The nine additional victims ranged in age from 20 to 37. Among them where eight men and two women.
New Orleans Police Superintendent Michael Harrison said the initial investigation indicates the shooting may have stemmed from an argument.
"This shooting appears to have stemmed from an argument between two males who are not from New Orleans who actually met each other in the 100 block of Bourbon Street," Harrison said. "We believe they ran into each other in the street and an argument ensued at that time that stemmed from an argument that was already, they already had from another place."
As investigators look through surveillance video, police say they have a pretty good idea who the shooters are.
Some tourists said incidents like Sunday's mass shooting would make them think twice before visiting New Orleans again.
"I enjoy coming out but for something like this to happen, it makes me not wanna revisit again, well maybe be on bourbon again, it's very sad and heartbreaking," said Cordero Richardson, a tourist from Mansfield.
"It's sad, it shouldn't have happened. it's like for somebody to come from Baton Rouge to lose their life like this, it's no cause for it," Timothy Boudreaux, of New Orleans, said.
