Dead in a Car

What do those punkrocker's say? Cars-R-Coffins. Something like that.

New Orleans police found the bodies of two men early Sunday inside of a vehicle in the Gentilly area. The men had been shot to death, police said. The incident originated at Hamburg and Lafreniere streets when two men approached the victims and began firing weapons. The victims' vehicle came to a stop eight blocks away at Mandolin and Hamburg streets, where police were called. The two gunmen fled the scene.

Wow, seems like we take a few days off and the whole thing blows up on us.

1)The first shooting occurred about 3:40 a.m. near Bienville and Decatur streets. The gunman shot the victim multiple times before fleeing on foot.
2)North Claiborne and St. Roch avenues about 5:20 p.m. A short time later a man with a gunshot wound to his torso showed up at University Hospital. His wound did not appear to be life-threatening.
3&4)West Carrollton neighborhood about 7:15 p.m. One person was shot in the leg and another was shot in the arm in the 1300 block of Joliet Street.

We can't count this morning. That 7 all together, right? Only two died though, right? We're so glad our coffee shop is back open after a week of summer vacation.
