NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The scene of Saturday's mass shooting has a violent history.

A jury convicted notorious criminal Telly Hankton in 2016 for three murders. One of those murders took place in the same block of South Claiborne in May 2008.

Curtis Matthew, the younger brother of the Jazz Daquiri shop owner, was shot and killed just days after Hankton was sentenced in October 2011.

John Matthews testified against Hankton in the trial.
