New Orleans Police have arrested two brothers in the city’s bloody Mother’s Day parade shootings and increased the number of wounded from 19 to 20.

Four others were arrested for harboring fugitives, mayor Mitch Landrieu said Thursday, the Times-Picayune reported.

Brothers Shawn Scott, 24, and Akein Scott, 19, face 20 counts of attempted second-degree murder. Akein Scott appeared in court Thursday and bail was set at $10 million.

Shawn Scott was arrested Thursday, authorities said, and will also be charged with heroin and drug violations. Akein Scott was taken into custody Wednesday night.

Aiken was already facing a gun and drug possession charge and was out on bond at the time of Sunday’s shooting. Scott was on parole after pleadeing guilty to a 2008 drug charge.

The Scott brothers are gang members members and the target of their attack was Leonard Epps, 35, who was shot multiple times in the chest, authorities said. Epps belongs to a rival gang, police said.

Harboring Fugitives

The brothers had been on the lam since the shootings. Those accused of harboring them are Justin Alexander, 19, Bionca Hickerson, 22, Nakia Youngblood, 32, and Brandy George, 28,

Three people are in critical condition following the parade melee, Landrieu said Thursday, standing at the scene of Sunday’s attack.

We think the death penalty might be a little too good for 2 a$$holes who murder people on Mother’s Day, let ‘em rot.
