To Busy To Die

Today, while working jobs in Treme, NOMB sees a whte man with pompador and tattoos hanging flyers in all the telephone poles. As the neighbors hang around the corners and the porches, this man put up his posters advertising a $3000 reward fo infomation on his friend who was murdered in July.
NOMB kept working, moving through the hood and watching for the words:

New Orleans Police are investigating the murder of a man this morning in the 7th Ward.
Patrol officers responded shortly before 8 a.m. to a house in the 2400 block of New Orleans Street and found a man lying on the ground with gunshot wounds to the body, according to a news release.

Think you can just stand around? Check this..

Bullets meant for a group of juveniles in Central City missed their mark Monday and sent two innocent bystanders into surgery, New Orleans police said.
The women, 23 and 21, were in the 3000 block of First Street about 5:30 p.m. when a dark-colored car passed. People in the car fired at a group of juveniles, said Sabrina Richardson, a police public information officer. She said the attackers missed their intended targets, and bullets hit the women below their waists.

And, just to recap for all you listeners out there:
New Orleans police were busy over the weekend, investigating eight unrelated shootings that killed one person and sent eight more to the hospital. One of the shootings involved a police officer who shot and wounded a 22-year-old man near North Claiborne Avenue and Annette Street in the 7th Ward, according to police records.
