New Media

1) Two young men were found shot, one fatally, Tuesday night in the 6th Ward. The wounded men were found about 8:45 p.m. at Bayou Road and North Prieur Street. Treme, Murder, Shooting

Two comments were left yesterday requesting that the NOMB provide links to the news stories we take our information from. Understandable. The reason we don't do so daily is largely a matter of convenience; we take our stories from police district email blasts, the Times-Picayune, and occasionally other publications and blogs. While we do our best to amalgamate NOLA violent crime news on a day-to-day basis, we are not professional journalists and can claim neither authority on our subject nor comprehensiveness. Sometimes, we simply don't have the time to write a post, let alone source it . Sometimes we miss a story. All of our sources are available to anyone with an internet connection and the willingness to search for them, but as few of you probably subscribe to the NOPD district email blasts, feel free to email us if you want to know where we found information that you're unable to find with a google search. In closing, we too wish a professional journalistic entity existed that were as comprehensive as we feebly attempt to be when it comes to crime in the NO.
