One from Us. One from 1.

1) A man was shot today at about 1:45 p.m. near the intersection of Dryades and Third streets in Central City. [...] An update on the man's condition was not immediately available.
2) More than 500 moldering criminal cases dating back to 2006 were refused by the Orleans Parish district attorney's office this fall, with prosecutors citing the same reason for dropping all of them: Police never gave them a report. Almost half of the refused cases were for drug possession, but they also included more serious crimes, including battery, theft, drug dealing and an attempted murder, according to a list of the cases assembled by the watchdog Metropolitan Crime Commission. The cases were refused between Aug. 1 and Nov. 14.


Stick with us for more on 2.

Read the report:
Neighbors found the body of the a shooting victim about 8:40 p.m., shortly after police had left the scene after investigating a 5:30 p.m. shooting at the West Carrollton intersection. Police say they are treating the two shootings at the intersection of Hollygrove and Green streets as separate incidents. But residents said they discovered the shooting victim's body after police left the scene and a neighbor cleaning her porch reported seeing someone fleeing the shooting. When they investigated, they found the man on the side of a house, about two doors down from the intersection.

And our translation:

There's a shooting on Hollygrove and Green. Cops show up and find a wounded man. A few hours later, the neighbors find the body of another man, in the same area, and cal it in. Cops do not consider the shootings related.

From the 9th Ward Archives:
Last Thursday:
4100 block of Dauphine St. aggravated battery by stabbing. The victim had just arrived home from work when the wanted subject began arguing with him. The wanted subject pulled the victim by the shirt causing him to fall to the ground. Once on the ground the wanted subject stabbed the victim in the right eye with a pair of scissors
