Posted on May 30, 2012 in Local Issues, NOPD
In a particularly tragic spate of violence on Tuesday, four separate shootings left 4 people dead and others wounded.
A 5-year old girl and a 33-year old woman were killed near a child’s birthday party in Central City. Witnesses stated that the killers were shooting at unidentified individuals who ran toward the party. 3 others were wounded.
A man was fatally shot in the head near Toulouse and Gayoso streets.
A 19-year old man was shot in the neck in eastern New Orleans. Sources did not establish his condition.
Finally, a man was shot in the stomach in the 4300 block of Carrolton Ave.
This string of violence serves as a stark reminder that no matter how far the city has come since Hurricane Katrina, much remains amiss in the areas of crime and violence throughout the city. Our thoughts go out to the victims’ families.
