HAPPENING TODAY: New recommendations on NOPD's use of force; showers expected

Recommendations from the Independent Police Monitor

Monday, we'll hear from the office of the Independent Police Monitor for the first time since Officer Daryle Holloway was killed in the line of duty. The recommendations for the NOPD come as some officers say they worry about the amount of force they're allowed to use with suspects.

The day after Ofc. Holloway was shot to death in his patrol unit, his accused killer, Travis Boys, was picked up and carried into central lockup.

Police Association of New Orleans attorney Eric Hessler says, “They're gonna have to write a use of force report on the fact that they used physical force to carry him into the jail.”

Hessler explains that's part of the new protocol thanks to a federal consent decree.

Stalled front the focus for a few showers

The front that moved into the area over the weekend has stopped its southward progression and will dissolve in the next 24 hours.

This allows the typical summer pattern to lock in with coverage late morning and afternoon in the 30-40 percent range.

Temperatures will start to rebound Monday afternoon with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 in some spots.

We will see a bit more dry weather heading into the middle of the week. Thursday and Friday look like the driest days with minimal rain chances returning for the independence day holiday.

Low water pressure Monday for Uptown residents

Residents and businesses in the 4000 block to 4300 blocks of Prytania Street between Constantinople Street and Napoleon Avenue will have to deal with low water pressure starting at 9 a.m. Monday.

Crews will perform a tie in of a new water main that serves the area. This is a part of the $188 million FEMA funded waterline replacement project.

1 dead, 2 injured in new Orleans east shooting

A 25-year-old man is dead and two others are injured following an overnight shooting in New Orleans East.

The shooting happened around midnight in the 4600 block of Alcee Fortier Boulevard near the intersection of Chef Menteur Highway.

New Orleans police say that the three victims, two men and a woman, were sitting inside of a silver sedan when the shooting happened. The car was parked in the parking lot of a strip mall when a second vehicle drove up and opened fire on the sedan, police say.

The victims ran out of the vehicle and collapsed on nearby Chef Menteur highway.

Officers arriving on the scene found one victim, identified only as a 25-year-old man, dead in the street.

Two other victims were found nearby. A male victim was transported to the hospital suffering from gunshot wounds to the back and arm, police say. His condition is unknown at this time. Police say the female victim was grazed by a bullet. Her injuries are non-life threatening.

Officers say a weapon was recovered at the scene.

Investigators are in the process of interviewing witnesses and gathering evidence. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
