NEW ORLEANS — A "person of interest" in the weekend shooting on New Orleans' famed Bourbon Street that left a woman dead turned himself in to police Wednesday.

Justin Odom, 20, surrendered to Gretna police. He was booked on unrelated charges, including outstanding traffic and shoplifting charges.

One of the 10 victims of the shooting died Wednesday.

According to the coroner's office, Brittany Thomas, 21, of Hammond, La., died from her injuries. She is the only victim of the shooting to die.

Thomas had been in critical condition since the early Sunday morning shooting when two gunmen sprayed the crowd with bullets.

Three others were reported in stable condition after Sunday's shooting: a 35-year-old man from Mississippi, a 19-year-old Arkansas woman and an 18-year-old New Orleans man.

Interim LSU Hospital spokeswoman Siona LaFrance said Wednesday a 21-year-old Australian woman was released from the hospital.

On Sunday, police said nine people were injured in the shooting. Then Monday, they said a person who came into the police department Sunday afternoon also was injured in the violence.

Other victims, not hospitalized, included two New Orleans-area men; a teenage girl and a woman from Alabama; and a Florida man.

Police haven't named Odom a suspect in this case. They say Odom is known to associate with a white male named either "Josh" or "Joe" who is also a person of interest in this investigation.

Police continue to seek the public's assistance in obtaining photos or videos that were taken of the incident or any photos or videos taken in the French Quarter on the night of the incident.
