According to Reuters, New Orleans police are familiar with Scott, who was last arrested in March and has a criminal history that includes charges for possessing narcotics and a firearm, as well as resisting arrest.
Ten men, seven women and a girl and a boy, both 10 years old, were injured when one or more people opened fire at the parade on Sunday; it is still unclear whether the shooting was gang-related, or if there was more than one gunman.
