Scott was identified as a suspect Monday after camera surveillance footage of the shooting was released, CNN reports.

It was the third holiday occasion this year when guns have been fired into crowds: A January 21 shooting near a Martin Luther King Day parade left five wounded. Four people were hurt in a February Mardi Gras attack, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reported.
