NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans authorities have released the name of the 21-year-old woman who died Wednesday after being shot on Bourbon Street over the weekend.

Mayor Mitch Landrieu says Brittany Thomas of Hammond, Louisiana, died at University Interim Hospital in New Orleans, where she was taken after Sunday’s shooting. A spokesman for the Orleans Parish Coroner’s Office had confirmed the woman’s death.

Nine other people were shot but are expected to survive.

Meanwhile, authorities say 20-year-old Justin Odom, identified by authorities as a “person of interest” in connection with the shooting, turned himself in to police Wednesday and was booked into the Jefferson Parish jail on shoplifting and traffic-related charges.

Police Department spokesman Hilal Williams says detectives questioned Odom in the presence of his attorney.
