Treme residents in fear following armed robberies

New Orleans, LA --People who live in the Treme Neighborhood near Governor Nicholls and Henriette Delille Streets are afraid to go outside when it's dark.

Two residents describe a scary scene outside their homes when a man with a gun robbed them.

M.A. Sheehan loves to walk her Treme neighborhood.

Lately she only goes outside during daylight hours.

Recently, while walking home from the Mahalia Jackson Theater following a play, a man with a gun came out of nowhere.

"And he pointed a gun at us and said give me all your money we've got," says Sheehan.

Less than 24 hours after Sheehan was robbed her neighbor was robbed by a man with a gun, while getting out of his car.

"And there was a fellow standing right here, he had a pistol and he says give me your wallet," says Treme Resident, Benjamin Bohannon.

This time, the suspect fired his gun.

"When I heard the gunshot all I could think of was getting inside the house," says Bohannon.

Residents are hoping New Orleans Police Officers beef up their presence before someone is shot.

If you have any information to help New Orleans Police solve these armed robberies call Crimestoppers at 822-1111.

    Welcome in to Juan's World and as you know, this blog that I do is strictly an opinion piece with a few facts sprinkled in here and there. So, with that in mind, I'm under the opinion that the Saints should've been 'expected' to look past the Jets to next weeks rematch with the Falcons. How could they not look ahead to Atlanta coming to the dome next Sunday. And before you go all 'One Game at a Time' on me, think for a second. You're supposed to beat the Jets, who came in 5-8 and wi...

    Three turnovers against the lowly Jets can still get you a win in this league. Numerous giveaways against the Eagles, Vikings, Rams, or Panthers might not give you the same result in the standings. The Saints end the season with the Falcons and the Bucs. If they want to end the 2017 regular season campaign on a win streak, things need to be cleaned up. "Two fumbles, and at times you're going to score. I just think that's happened too many times to us this year. We're knocking a...
