Cantrell on shooting: 'No place in New Orleans for this kind of violence'
NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The New Orleans mayor issued a statement following a violent gang-related shooting that killed three and injured seven over the weekend.
Mayor LaToya Cantrell said that the shooting was "unacceptable."
"There is no place in New Orleans for this kind of violence. I speak for everyone in our City when I say we are disgusted, we are infuriated, and we have had more than enough. Three more lives — gone. It has to end. This happened near my neighborhood, on the edge of Broadmoor. It's unacceptable anywhere.
"We are grateful to those on the scene tonight: the NOPD, EMS, the chaplains and the social workers. We will dedicate every resource necessary to ending this horror and seeing justice done."
NOPD Chief Michael Harrison is once again urging members of the community to call NOPD Homicide Unit detectives at 504-658-5300 or Crimestoppers with any information that may help in the investigation. Crimestoppers is offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest in this case.
