Nine people shot in less than seven hours
Six people were shot inside a Mid-City nightclub Friday morning just hours after a triple shooting in Bywater.
Just hours before, a triple shooting in the Bywater area left two people dead.
Mayor Ray Nagin was also at the crime scene Thursday night and issued the following statement on the murders:
“Last month, I stated that one murder is too many in our community, our fragile city that is still on the journey to recovery. Tonight, I am deeply saddened that our young people continue dying in our streets.”
I am too, Mayor Nagin. We need to get out of New Orleans now! The future of freedom and democracy in that war-torn city isn’t worth the loss of more American lives.
And by the way, how come Florida, Alabama and Mississippi haven’t fallen to the post-Katrina Insurgents like New Orleans has???
