Police are trying to determine what sparked a gun battle in a New Orleans park that left 16 people wounded.

Hundreds of people were gathered late on Sunday for what police described as a combination street party and music video shoot.

Then two groups of gunmen pulled out weapons and started shooting at each other. In the chaotic aftermath, the gunmen ran off.

All the victims are in a stable condition and either suffered direct gunshot wounds or were grazed by bullets, police spokesman Tyler Gamble said.

New Orleans mayor Mitch Landrieu called on people with knowledge of the incident to help police.
