Police received multiple 911 calls reporting the shooting just after 11:30 p.m. on Monday along the popular strip of Art Deco hotels and restaurants. Officers found one person struck in the shoulder and another in the leg not far from the Prime 112 restaurant.


Both victims were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where one remained in critical condition and was paralyzed, police said. The other victim was treated and released.

According to an arrest report, Urena had been involved in an argument with another group of men when he pulled out a gun and opened fire.
