It Finally Happened

We all knew it would. And then, it did.

An innocent bystander was shot inside the lobby of a Central Business District hotel by a stray bullet from a fight going on outside Wednesday at about 9:30 p.m., said Sgt. Joe Narcisse, a New Orleans Police Department spokesman.
A fight broke out outside the hotel in the 200 block of Carondelet Street and gunshots rang out, Narcisse said. After the gunfire stopped, it was discovered that a bullet shattered the window of the Holiday Inn Express lobby and struck a hotel guest, who was not identified.

Happy Mardi Gras Tourists. Also, duck.

Da Paper went to pains to assure everyone that the victim was NOT a tourist.
