They'll get ya...

1) The victim , age 3, and the other children were in the front bedroom asleep and the other kids were in the back bedroom getting ready for bed. He [victim's grandfather] then heard several gunshots and the kids screaming. He said they ran to the front of the house and observed his house shot up and his grandson bleeding from his back. /// The incident took place at about 11 p.m. Thursday in the 14900 block of Emory Road. [The East]

2) A 28-year-old man was shot Thursday night while driving his car on the I-10 through downtown New Orleans. About 7:12 p.m., the victim drove near the Poydras Street exit on the I-10's eastbound span when several gunshots were fired at him from a white car packed with several passengers. A bullet struck the man's upper left shoulder. He drove himself to University Hospital, and he was in good condition Thursday night.

3) A man was shot multiple times Friday night in Marrero and died from the wounds. The man, 24 years old and from Marrero, was shot shortly after 9 p.m. in the 2100 block of Caddy Drive.

4) About an hour after the first shooting, another shooting was reported in Harvey in the 2400 block of Sandoz Street. The victim was shot multiple times and found slumped over the front seat of a silver, four-door Accura. A resident in the block said a friend went outside for a smoke and overheard people arguing. Then a man started shouting: "Somebody shot my brother! Somebody shot my brother!"

...whether you east, west, or headed in either direction.

Your murder map is down.

And I read regularly, which I add because that little sentence up there seems abrupt and rude, when I just thought your webmaster might like to know if something isn't working. I think it's appropriate to thank you for the caustic manner in which you focus on these deaths, these crimes, although I assume you know what a hollow thing it is to be thanked for.
