16 people hospitalized in New Orleans shooting


A gunfight between two groups erupted on Sunday in a New Orleans park where hundreds of people were gathered for a block party and the filming of a music video, leaving 16 people wounded, police said.

Circumstances surrounding the shooting in the city’s Upper Ninth Ward, and details of what precipitated the violence, were not immediately clear, but New Orleans Police Department spokesman Tyler Gamble told Reuters no fatalities were reported.

Asked whether gang activity was thought to be involved, Gamble said it “was still too soon to say.”

    Asked whether gang activity was thought to be involved, Gamble said it “was still too soon to say.”
    “We know, by speaking with some of the victims, that there were two groups of people shooting at each other,” Gamble said.

    Yeah, that’s a real head-scratcher.
    Maybe, maybe not. ‘Could go either way.

    They managed to get all the way through the story without giving a description of EITHER of the two groups of shooters.
    Dang! If I did not know better, I’d swear they were intentionally trying to hide such information.
    Something tells me that the halo of “white privilege” was hard at work making sure that none of the victims looked like me.

      Sometimes we know all the answers, even if they don’t tell us.

      I had to laugh at the headline, I know it was gangs and what ‘color’ they were by the lack of accurately placed shots, It is a known fact holding your gun sideways and ignoring the sights does not make for accurate shot placement.

    “Block” party. Did they get the vowel wrong?

      They didn’t move their vowels.

    A music video? I wonder what type of ‘music’ it was?

    300 years of oppression can result in alienated youth without a voice acting out in desperation. Check your white priviledge at the door and walk a mile in there shoes. Racism, poverty, poor education and oppression are all Hollmarks of the Bush administration policies too keep the black population hanging on bye a thread.

      Walk a mile in someone else’s shoes. No thank-you. You will only find yourself a mile away with shoes that don’t fit. I never take that advice. I’ll stick with my Dan Post’s and Boulet’s.

      What you really mean is check your IQ at the door. There’s a reason why Africa is the way it is, and it’s the same reason why every black community in the US is the way it is. Blaming someone else for your problems is a sure way to make sure nothing ever gets better for you.

    Shot while black. My guess is racists.

    • Clausewitz

      Can’t be racist if they were shot by other blacks. Remember the progressive hymnal states that only whitey is racist.

      • Millie_Woods

        What about white people in blackface? They’re everywhere giving black folk a bad name.
