NEW ORLEANS, Feb. 18 (UPI) -- A third suspect has been arrested for a quadruple shooting on New Orleans' Bourbon Street during the city's Mardi Gras festivities, police said.

Malcolm "London" Hall, 19, turned himself in to police at about 2 p.m. Saturday, The (New Orleans) Times-Picayune reported. He was charged with four counts of attempted first-degree murder.

Hall was allegedly involved in the Feb. 9 shooting that left four people hospitalized.

Two other suspects in the shooting, Brandon Brown, 22, and Deron Bridgewater, 23, were arrested and booked in the days following the incident. Bond has been set at $1 million for each of the three men.

The shooting happened outside of a crowded strip club at about 9:30 p.m. after three men started arguing.

One of the three men, an 18-year-old, was shot in the stomach. On Friday morning he was listed in stable condition in the hospital. Three bystanders who were also injured have since been released from the hospital.
