Update: SBPDL has linked to some vital information: in 2009, 97.1% of known murderers in New Orleans were African-Americans.
“Crime in New Orleans: Analyzing Crime Trends and New Orleans’ Responses to Crime,” an examination of 200 criminal homicides in New Orleans from April 18, 2009, to May 11, 2010 by Charles Wellford, Brenda Bond and Sean Goodison, showed that 90 percent of the homicides were committed with a firearm.
Of the 200 victims, 91.5 percent were black, 5 percent were white and 2 percent were Hispanic. Only 51 percent of the homicides – 102 – were solved by the police, with 97.1 percent of the known first offenders being black.”
Second Update: The Daily Beast has a new article called, “I Saw The Shooter”:
“Standing about 10 yards away, on the right side of the street at the corner, facing the middle of the street, I saw the shooter. He was a young black kid. Couldn’t have been older than 18, skinny, wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans, standing with his hand outstretched, firing rapidly into the middle of the street.”
Third Update: A video of the shooting has been released below:
