We know, not so many people live up in the 1900 block of Port these days. We know, it happened at night. Still, 12 hours is a long wait for the bus, even in the NO.
2) Alvin Smith, 21, was found shot to death in front of an abandoned apartment complex in the 1900 block of Port Street this morning [Monday, 23rd]. Smith had likely been left on the sidewalk in front of the home for at least 12 hours.
3) A man was shot dead in Lower Gentilly Terrace late Monday night. He was shot multiple times about 10 p.m. in the 3500 block of Clematis Street near Elder Street, about one block west of Franklin Avenue.
