"Did you know there were two rapes in Audubon?," they ask. "In broad daylight. And that Laurel Street Bakery was robbed, and that someone was shot?"

"We tracked these things," we say. But to be truthful, we are still taken aback. "That's pretty far uptown."

New Orleans police are investigating a murder in the 2500 block of Constitution Street in Gentilly. A man was reportedly shot to death.

A 15-year-old boy was shot in the stomach by an off-duty parole officer in a botched robbery attempt Tuesday morning in a popular Uptown bakery.

I don't know if you're tracking the NOPD Crime Alerts, but it turns out the Laurel Street Bakery robber was the same guy who robbed Hansen's Sno-Blitz and New York Pizza. One-man crime wave!
