Phone Calls

Call #1

"Someone just called and asked if I knew the person who was running the murder blog?"
"You told them you didn't know, right?"
"Of course."

Call #2

"What's going on?"
"I was just thinking about you guys and the murder blog, what with all these murders lately."

Oct 4th: 2400 block North Villere St. aggravated battery by shooting. The victim had attended a block party at the intersection of North Villere and Music St. She was standing in the street, when gunshots rang out. The victim immediately felt pain in her left leg and discovered she was shot.


We're not saying that street justice is excusable. But if it were our brother. We're just saying...

On Wednesday about 9:30 a.m., a 28-year-old local man was sitting in his car at the intersection of Jackson Avenue and Willow Street when a gunman approached. The gunman, identified by police as Lawrence Fleury, 31, fired several times. A bullet struck the man in the car once in his upper chest. Fleury fled and the shooting victim drove himself to a hospital. The victim's brother, 36, who was at the scene of the shooting, began following his brother to the hospital in his own vehicle. But at the intersection of South Claiborne Avenue and Josephine Street, the victim's brother saw Fleury throw a gun into a nearby Dumpster. The brother then hit Fleury with his vehicle.
