Near and Far

NOMB walked home from work to find a police officer standing on the back of a young black man in a grey sweat suit. The officer had his gun to the back of the kid's head. After a bowl of instant oatmeal and a glass of water, NOMB went back out front to find cop cars swarming the blocks. There were marked ones, unmarked ones, ones with out of state plates. Where they all came from is anyone's guess.
AS they were putting the kid in the back of the squad car, we overheard the officer say, "How did you like that taser/"

Well folks, how do you like four murders in one night?

Four men were killed overnight in New Orleans in two separate shootings

In the first incident, police responded shortly before midnight to the 13000 block of Explorer Street in New Orleans East, said Officer Shereese Harper.

Officers found two men slumped down in a patch of grass in front of an abandoned house, police said. Nearby, a third victim, was lying in the street.

Each of the men, whose identities have not been released, had gunshot wounds to the head and body. They were pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Around 3 a.m., police investigated a fatal shooting in Treme. Officers found a man with gunshot wounds to the head and back lying aside an abandoned building in the 1500 block of St. Ann.

1500 block of St. Ann? We were just over there
