NEW ORLEANS, July 2 (UPI) -- One of the 10 victims of Sunday's shooting on Bourbon Street in New Orleans has died.

Brittany Thomas, 21, of Hammond, La., was critically injured in what police described as a violent dispute between two men. She died Wednesday at Interim LSU Public Hospital.

Five men and four other women were also shot. Three victims in stable condition are still the hospital.

Though police have yet to make any arrests, they have named 20-year-old Justin Odom as a "person of interest."

He is already wanted on warrants not related to Sunday's shooting.
