It’s very uncomfortable in the city these days. And the only recourse seems to be stabbing, and shooting, and robbing. NOMB wonders if the sting and burn of the mosquito bites might suddenly vanish if they suited up and stormed the Gay Bar-B-Que down on the corner and demanded the cash.
This first one had no reportage in yesterday’s paper, just picture of a man with a sheet. Today, we get the juice:
A 19-year-old New Orleans man was gunned down by an AK-47 assault rifle late Tuesday night in Central City.
Shortly before 10 p.m., police responding to a report of gunshots found the man face down on the sidewalk in the 1600 block of Baronne Street, bloodied by gunshot wounds, according to Officer Sabrina Richardson.
Kenner police are looking for two gun-wielding men who entered a south Kenner home last week, pistol-whipped a couple who had been sitting in their living room watching television and stole the woman's purse, Kenner police said.
This one has potential -
Officers were summoned Tuesday to Dixieland Mobile Home and RV Park, 176 W. Airline Drive, at about 11:20 a.m. after a resident found the body of Odrey Bordelon, 60, said Capt. James Gallagher, Kenner Police Department spokesman. Bordelon's body was in the bedroom of his apartment with a cable wrapped tightly around his neck.
The boy, who authorities say was captured minutes after the Tuesday night robbery, pulled a silver handgun on his schoolmate, a 15-year-old LaPlace boy, in the 200 block of Elm Street in LaPlace, authorities said. He was booked with armed robbery, said Maj. Mike Tregre, spokesman for the Sheriff's Office.
A 22-year-old LaPlace man is recovering from a gunshot wound suffered during a robbery attempt Friday night as investigators on Wednesday continued searching for the gunman.
