Sick To Stomach

Lots of reason to get sick today. Stomach virus. Smell of dead flesh on N. Roman, or any one of these...

The East:
1)Keenon M. McCann died on the sidewalk of the 6100 block of Dreux Avenue after someone fired multiple bullets into his body shortly before 2 a.m. McCann was inside a house on the block with his girlfriend. The girlfriend told authorties that McCann received a call from someone telling him to "come outside." When he stepped out, McCann was gunned down.

Let's hope NOPD has learned to search telephone records.

Apparently there was gunfire and a real fire right next to each other in Esplanade Ridge yesterday
2)Officers were scouring the scene of a shooting near the busy intersection of Columbus Street and North Claiborne Avenue in the 7th Ward. A 17-year-old man was wounded in a spray of gunfire, police said. The victim was shot once in the back. He was taken in critical condition to University Hospital.

3)Shortly before 6 p.m. in the 2000 block of Felicity Street. A gunman on a green bicycle riding along the sidewalk opened fire on Allen Ivery Jr., 24, who was driving a black Buick Regal riverbound on Felicity. The victim's vehicle hit a utility pole in the middle of the block and eventually came to a halt after crashing into a fence at the intersection of Felicity and South Rampart streets. The car stopped alongside a dilapidated house and Ivery died sitting inside the car.
