NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- New Orleans Police say a second suspect wanted in Saturday night's quadruple shooting during Mardi Gras celebrations on Bourbon Street has been arrested.

The Times-Picayune ( http://bit.ly/YqRR3L ) reports that 22-year-old Brandon Brown turned himself in at 5 p.m. Tuesday.

Police say Brown was booked with four counts of attempted first-degree murder for his part in the shooting, which happened in the middle of Mardi Gras revelry and left four people hospitalized.

Police also have arrested 23-year-old Deron Bridgewater in connection with the shooting. Bridgewater turned himself in to authorities Monday after he saw himself on television. It isn't clear if either suspect has an attorney.

Police say they're also seeking a person of interest in the case.
