You know it's getting bad around here, the reportage we mean, when even our editors have to cross check reports against our own post to make sure that we're not double posting the same incident.

When they come in as fast as they have over the last few days, it's hard to see through all the smoke:

1)Police investigated a shooting Monday at about 5:30 p.m. in the 5700 block of Dauphine Street in the Lower 9th Ward. Someone shot a 19-year-old man once in the right leg, three times in the left leg and once in the upper left back. He was taken to a hospital in unknown condition.

Also, the man shot Monday in the LGD. His name was Vernon Johnson. He was riding his bike.

We all like to ride our bikes. Let us know if we're missing something.
