Three people are dead and seven hurt after two shooters opened fire Saturday night in New Orleans, police said. The suspects are reportedly still at large.

Here are the latest updates: 

Update 11:17 a.m. EDT July 29: New Orleans police Chief Michael Harrison said he believed the motives for the shootings were personal, WVUE reported.

"This has to be personal. Firing indiscriminately into a crowd, shooting 10 people, killing three -- that’s personal," Harrison said. "It doesn’t get more personal and we take it personal. So whoever did this, you should know that the law enforcement community takes it personal, so we’re coming for you."

No new details were released by authorities Sunday morning, The Times-Picayune reported.

Update 3:17 a.m. EDT July 29: According to the New Orleans Advocate, the shooters, both wearing hoodies, opened fire outside a Claiborne Avenue shopping center about 8:30 p.m. CDT.

Advocate reporter Ramon Antonio Vargas tweeted that police believe the shooters, armed with a long gun and a handgun, "fired indiscriminately."

Police said two men and one woman were killed in the gunfire. One of the injured was in critical condition, but the other victims' wounds were not life-threatening, authorities said.
