(AP) NEW ORLEANS - New Orleans police say a third man has turned himself in to face charges stemming from a shooting on Bourbon Street three days before Mardi Gras.

Officer Hilal Williams says 19-year-old Malcolm Hall was booked Saturday with four counts of attempted first-degree murder.

An online jail roster indicates that his bond had not been set Sunday.

Two Marrero, Louisiana men - 22-year-old Brandon Brown and 23-year-old Deron Bridgewater - turned themselves in earlier and were booked with the same charges. Their bonds are set at $1 million: $250,000 on each count.

It was not clear whether any of the suspects has an attorney.

The shooting injured four people, one seriously, during the run-up to Mardi Gras. Police have not released the victims' names.
