Day 1013: Another Shooting In My Neighborhood

Two blocks away this time.  We drank our coffee to the sirens of speeding police cars and ambulances that rattled our house while rushing to the scene.

In what continues to be a busy crime scene in the Lower Garden District, a gunman shot a 36-year-old man near the corner of Annunciation and Market streets, then led police on a foot chase through the neighborhood.

Officers eventually lost sight of him of the suspected shooter, according to police radio reports. By 8:21 a.m., officers had found a gun and were guarding it. Police were also keeping people away as they combed the area for the suspect.

Kill the FEMA-trailer resident in Lakeview but lose sight of a shooting suspect.  I am so tired of this.

    Good Lord. That’s what all those sirens were. If crime could be solved in direct proportions to the number of sirens you hear, that shooter ought to be locked away in Angola by now.

    Oh, such lovely wishes…
