While everyone else is trying to split town, the 7th ward is keeping pace.

A 17-year-old was found at 12:40 p.m. on the sidewalk, unresponsive and bloody, at the intersection of Touro and North Roman streets. He had been shot several times. He was dead at the scene.

The Times-Pic went up and knocked on the door of a man in the neighborhood. Surprisingly, he was unphased.

"It was just a boy from the neighborhood," he said as he ate his lunch. "Somebody had a beef and shot him."

Sarcasm aside, this is the thrid murder on N. Roman in as many weeks.

Good luck everyone.
