(CNN) -- Gunfire struck seven people on Bourbon Street in New Orleans early Sunday, police spokesman Frank Robertson said.

The victims have been taken to a local hospital. One is in critical condition; the other six are in stable condition, Robertson said.

The block where the shooting occurred is a popular gathering place for tourists and revelers, where many of them pack bars and clubs. Crowds often spill into the streets.

The scene is around the corner from other famed attractions, such as jazz concert venue Preservation Hall and the popular bar Pat O'Brien's.
